I went through this decision recently. What type of firm is it?

You already know the answer to that question and it won't be some random guy on the internet making the decision for you but: As Steve Jobs would say, "You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." Good luck!

So if things make sense in the past AND your gut tells you the historical trend is reliable for the future, then Steve Jobs was game?

Is it more money?

I'm supposed to join D. in Jan (after my original start dt got pushed from Sept.), however, due to circumstances outside of my control, I think I may need to push my start date - do you think the recruiter will be receptive to this? I've heard the bench is full of new grades now (I'm a new grade) or will the recruiter take this as reneging?
