I’m a senior accounting student and I have the opportunity to interview for a matter management internship role at a law firm (activities involved in managing all aspects of the corporate legal practice. ) Would this be a good opportunity to get me into risk analysis/ FP&A one day?

Not really. You're better served doing an accounting/finance related internship if you're going for those fields.

I am so happy to not be grinding out 1065s, K1s, or 1120- RICs anymore .

Someone change my mind here with work being outsourced to India and automated - is the accounting profession about to change ? Especially public accounting ? I hated getting back some review points on returns .

Been getting a ton of recruiter outreach messages lately, and a lot of them are attractive roles that I would never even be on a shortlist for. I'm a mid-range analyst at best.

How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?
