How Much Does Consulting Experience Help???

Postby Impending1L » Tue Jun 26, 2012 9:07 pm

I wasn't happy with my cycle so I retook in June and am awaiting the score. I recently landed a consulting position for this year (not a major one). How much does consulting experience on your resume help with law school admissions? Also, how much does it help going through hiring with law firms?

I have heard that it helps a lot with OCI, and I can see why. My friends who went into consulting can talk about high-pressure work environments, client interaction, business travel, etc., and just look more comfortable and confident in a suit. I think prestigious consulting experience is also something law firms like to list on their associates' pages.

I'm not sure it will help you much with admissions.
