URGENT: Advice on reneging
Accepted a return offer from, which is ~6 hours away from home. I loved the team and role and saw myself joining the firm full time, but one of my parents was suddenly diagnosed with a chronic medical condition and I'm not sure if I can commit to live so far away for a summer, and possibly full time. I have a verbal offer for a very similar role ~1 hour away from home and want to take that job simply because I can commute and stay close to my family as we try to navigate this situation. But I feel terrible at the idea of rescinding my acceptance since I have made connections at my soph firm. What is the most ethical way to approach a situation like this? I know that rescinding is looked down upon, but are there exceptions considering my situation? I'm feeling pretty desperate about all of this.
