Sufficient Work Experience for Northwestern?

Postby Dr. Strangelove » Tue Oct 26, 2010 9:38 pm

I've been thinking of what I possibly want to do after college (besides law school).
I have a real estate license and have been thinking of working full-time as a real estate agent along with doing SAT prep [and LSAT- if December goes well] for a test prep company after graduating.
Regardless of any other stats, is this work experience Northwestern would be happy with?

My understanding is that almost any type of work experience satisfies Northwestern's work experience "preference/requirement".

Sweet!
Depending on my LSAT, I think that this might be one of my more fun and smarter ways to getting into one of my top choices.

The only thing that I think are "requirements" for it are being postgrad and full time.

The only thing that i have seen with regards to this is a comment from DVZ that they prefer the work not be legal (i.e. not a paralegal position).

I have 10+ years of pre-grad experience (and 4 months of post), they are counting it... I think just have to be serious, professional positions.
