Interesting problem. I'm a student summering at a v50 law firm in NYC and currently I am in the middle of a medical dilemma; nothing serious but I'll need to have two wisdom teeth removed sooner rather than later. Job starts in less than a month and typically I'd just take care of this now but I am in the middle of exams. To make matters more complicated due to travel I will not have the recommended 1 week of down time between the surgery and complete recovery before my job starts.
Thus, my options appear to be either go the entire summer associate program treating the symptoms of the molar problem (rinsing with saline & Hydrogen Peroxide) and hoping an infection doesn't occur that would force me to miss work, or
Contact the firm and try to schedule a time when I could have the procedure done with the minimal interference.
My question is how much will the latter option impact my prospects for a offer? Anyone whose had similar experiences would be helpful.
Clearly the order of priority is: Vacation > Exams > 160K job.
