legal internship or nonprofit internship

Postby Dr. Dre » Thu Mar 07, 2013 11:12 pm

so here is the deal. i want to do environmental law. I got offered an internship at a law firm and also am invited to join this nonprofit (for environmental justice). both for the summer.

In the FORMER i will prob just do shitty menial peasant tasks like paper work, stapling, looking at evidence....but will work with attys

In the LATTER i will actually talk to people about the conditions that they face, have real interactions with them, and write reports... (this will take place in an african american community plagued by chemicals, pollutants, etc)

which should I take? don't say "whatever makes you happy." Tell me which will impress the adcoms. Participating in either will not increase or diminish my happiness, getting into law schools will.

OR—

should i study all summer, screw both internships, and get 170+ in OCT's LSAT?

Do the internship and retake.

ETA the internship at the nonprofit. An undergrad internship at a law office sounds like a waste of time.
