That said, "limiting" depends on what you want to do. I went to law school in a market that sounds a bit like yours, and if the vast majority of lawyers in that market work in those kinds of firms, and you want to stay in that market, I don't think it's going to "limit" you, it sounds like a realistic outcome for your context. And I'd rather be at a small firm with good people/work than a big firm with bad people/work.

This can't be emphasized highly enough. OP, if you're going to be graduating in May 2019 and this is your only offer on the table, you should absolutely take it. The legal job market is rough even for the strongest 3L candidates: Most employers (aside from BigLaw/BigFed) prefer to hire folks who can start right away, which means hiring folks who're already admitted to the bar.
