Background: I graduated in May and worked a summer internship till late July. I was traveling for a bit, came back, and started tutoring/repairing my parents' house. Tutoring is decent money/flexible hours, and working on the house=free rent/food, all of which amounts to my being able to travel a little. I will start looking for a full-time job (probably nothing impressive--probably just an office worker or some such) when I get back from another trip in early November and will probably start volunteering again. I've also set up another law-related internship for this coming summer.
Basically, my question is...how do I tell adcomms what I've been doing lately? I already have a 1-page addendum covering my criminal record & GPA trend, and I'll also send a "Why X" to 3-4 schools. I definitely don't want to submit one of those applications that seemingly never ends, but I want adcomms to understand that I have been doing something other than just lazing around. How do I best communicate what I've been doing/why I've done it? Should I just list tutoring/working on the house on my resume with a little bullet explaining why I've done those things instead of using my degree?
