Tell firm about an offer 1L SA

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jan 11, 2017 10:51 pm

AA at a t14. Only received one grade back so far and it was an "A-". I was just given an offer from a firm that I would go to but it isn't the highest on my list of firms that I have had interviews with. The offer expires in 14 days. What is the proper etiquette in telling a firm that you have recieved an offer from a different firm? Don't want to come off as pushy or desperate. Thanks in advance for the help.

Also email or phone call?

Email the firms and tell them your deadline. Just be direct and straightforward.

+1. It's not pushy or desperate to inform a firm that you've interviewed with that you received an offer from another firm. They'll almost certainly take it as an accurate sign of your continuing interest.
