Re: Pro Bono Coordinator Position and Admissions

So far I've really only considered paralegal or legal assistant positions as potentially impressive pre-law school positions that are law-related and within my qualifications. Would a pro pono coordinator be a good position to admissions counselors as well?


It couldnt hurt...but you know what could hurt? A shitty LSAT score.

Focus on the LSAT, with your GPA and other softs, I dont think a lack of an additional soft will be what ultimately leads to you receiving rejections from top schools.

This is a great question. As you consider your options for legal work, be sure to focus on positions about which you are passionate and to which you can commit yourself entirely. By dedicating your time and energy to a position about which you are genuinely enthusiastic, you will naturally find yourself in situations that will make excellent fodder for quality application essays and powerful recommendations. Hope this helps.
