Renege on USAO acceptance?

Postby lk7999 » Tue Mar 13, 2018 12:00 am

Is it advisable to renege on an acceptance of a USAO offer later in the week when you receive a paid offer in your hometown? If so, best way to go about this? Possible ramifications? Which option would you choose — stick with USAO or take the paid offer?

Particular USAO Office not really in any nearby region of my school if that’s helpful.

I'm assuming by your mention of 'paid', that this is a summer USAO position? If that's the case, I don't think it should matter at all if you renege, unless you hope to one day work for this particular office (but even then, probably won't even matter)
