Oversleeping the interviewWhy won't you have time to meet with the MD? I think that's the least you could do given that you made a mistake by oversleeping. Meet with him for 15 minutes, tell him how much you appreciated the opportunity but that you have decided on a different shop. Don't burn a bridge, build a relationship... 4 years 11 months

Law school as an investment in long-term job...Thank you both for offering some great insight into my questions. I think the Big 4 idea is fantastic and one I had never considered since I thought the typical path was to use the Big 4 as a career-starter only. Thanks again... 6 years 4 months
