"Research Assistant Scholarship" vs regular merit

Postby Mtaylor2187 » Wed Apr 01, 2015 5:37 pm

After some negotiation, UGA is offering me a research assistant job as a scholarship opportunity. I have a few quick questions if anyone is familiar with this type of job or opportunity.

How does this rate vs a regular scholarship? Is it essentially a law school work study? How does the job look on a resume/how helpful would it be compared to the amount of work it would take? Last, are these jobs typically available to students without this type of scholarship?

1. Worse usually.
2. Don't know what you are asking here.
3. It looks fine. Not as good as having varied legal experience. If you already have top grades these can be good opportunities to make nice with a connected professor who can recommend you for a clerkship.
4. Yes.
