Summer before applying?!

Postby oregon000 » Mon Apr 11, 2011 2:05 pm

I am trying to decide what to do the summer before I apply. I am currently out of school.

my options are:

1) Continue with the internship I have been doing for the past 6 months, have it be current when I apply
2) Quit the internship in May, and take a couple of summer classes at State U ( Would this look bad/)
3) quit the internship in May and get a job for the summer as a camp counselor or waiter.

i am wondering if there is a "right answer" here as far as boosting my applications goes. any thoughts?

1. I'm assuming this is unpaid and it will probably look the best.
2. This won't look bad.
3. If you want the extra cash then do this.

These really won't make a difference at all in your application so do whatever the hell you feel like doing.

you are already in so i would say try for the extra money unless the internship allows you to learn important info pertaining to law school.

Already in? I am yet to apply. Do you mean in at the internship?

I think that poster assumed you had already applied.
