i definitely feel like it is now expected of you in this modern culture to speak two languages fluently, so put it on your resume and it won't hurt you and might help you, but it wont contribute anything to your gpa or LSAT which is 90% of the game. and i love desert fox.

Great advice, thank you! I have 15 years of technical WE in the field I want to practice, so hopefully I should be competitive. I am trying for a T10, otherwise the job prospect and earning power out of school may be worse than my job prospect now with my BS and WE in my current field.

I don't think I will be the seaturtle type. It took a lot to swim over here and I just don't see me swim back over there. My family is all rooted here, although, spending sometime over in Asia will probably do wonders for the kids to learn their ancestry. Thanks again.
