Underemployed/Unemployed and Getting Into Law School?

Postby RamTitan » Thu Aug 18, 2016 3:50 pm

Does being unemployed or underemployed affect getting into law school?

I graduated college in the spring of 2015; since then I've had a full-time internship, a full-time contract position that lasted 6 months, and just started a part-time contract role that is only guaranteed to last till the end of September, but has the possibility of being extended (had four part-time internships during college). Most of these are Internet marketing roles for small companies and agencies.

It can impact admissions but won't if you have a good GPA and LSAT score. There are lots of K-JDs who have never worked or have been underemployed before law school.

You're going to be fine.

Nobody cares. GPA/LSAT is all that matters. Soft factors, 99% of the time can only help (URM, military service, great WE), not hurt you.

Crush the LSAT and you are fine.
