Internship??

Postby cj213 » Mon Apr 18, 2011 10:46 pm

Hey guys I'm a junior who will be starting an internship this summer at a local law firm. I've been told by friends that generally they will ask how much time you are looking to work. Is there generally a minimum amount of time that is required to be considered by law schools??


On a side note I do realize this is a bit off topic but I really could not think of another place to ask this sort of question. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks

LOL. Is this a troll? If not, have you read any posts here - even one? The numbers that count are LSAT and UG GPA, not hours worked over summer.

Oh sorry about that. I mean is there a minimum amount of time that you must spend in an internship if you plan on mentioning it on an application? I wasn't sure if there were supplementary requirements such as a certain amount of hours.

On apps they'll usually ask you to list how many hours you put in at your job, yeah. But there isn't a cutoff point. Although your school may have one if you want course credit
