Also I wouldn't worry about the business/public interest issue; plenty of people who are public interest lawyers/non profit directors have mba's/business experience. I do think you need to make a strong connection between working at the shelter and becoming a public interest lawyer; I need to see the string of logic from point A to B to C.

About 5 hours every week for almost a year. If I were to stick with my original conclusion of how it impacted me as a person, do you think that would be appropriate? Or should I definitely try and talk about it's influence on wanting to go into public interest law? Although I do have a genuine interest in pursuing public advocacy, there are other fields of law that are also appealing and I would have to sit down and really plan out the logic (like you were saying) if I were to write about that.
