But it means you can afford to live and get relevant experience while looking for a real job.
So does living in your moms basement. It's not a job and shouldn't count if you are trying to deduce employment percentages.
I mean, I get that it's designed to game the rankings, and that if you can afford to volunteer during that period you get the same benefit. But it still helps people who can't afford to spend the time volunteering. I've seen a lot of decent outcomes from these positions, and all else equal, would rather go to a school that offered them than that didn't.
Although lol at the idea that they're legit if they pay for bar prep. There are lots of legal jobs that don't pay for bar prep.
