    Is doing bluebook cores that big of a deal?

    Advertisements



    Seems like people on these forums try to stick with greenbook rotations and avoid bluebook like the plague lol.

    I have been given the option of doing all of my cores in a 1 city, but it will be a mixture of Green and Blue. Normally, this would scare me off like the plague as well but I've been looking at the two states that I am interested in working in (GA and FL) and it seems like they don't care about green vs. bluebook.

    Did anyone out there do bluebook cores and are currently practicing? any regrets?

    at first, this is what i also believed.. however, i am starting to realize that the toughest part of what we have to deal with in the caribbean is landing a residency-- and from what i've read and researched, the greenbook/bluebook dilemma only affects about 5 states when it comes to residency..

    after residency, i would like to think that we would all be able to get a job at least somewhere in every state (if we were eligible, of course). that being said, if we were content in the 30-35 states that do no discriminate between Green and Bluebook, and knowing we have a good chance at getting a job in every one of those states, would there be any harm in just starting bluebook cores understanding the obvious drawbacks of not being able to practice in states that one would not even plan on living in to begin with?
