Does my job help me?

Postby juniorb2536 » Sun Aug 28, 2016 8:56 pm

I graduated undergrad in May, and now I have a job with a law firm working on foreclosure cases.

The firm I work for is a Top 10 international firm, with over 40 offices worldwide, and I work directly with the NYC office but I am based in another office. I work on foreclosure cases where we represent a one of the largest banks in the world. I love the job, and I am making great connections that will definitely be useful once I graduate from law school.

My question is how much will the job improve my application? Does it make me a better candidate, or is it something that most schools will overlook?

It helps, but not as much as you're hoping.

LSAT/GPA is 90% of your application.

Thanks. I'm honestly not expecting it to make a huge difference. I know that it's not going to move me from being a wait list into a scholarship contender at schools. I am more just wondering how it would benefit my application/scholarship chances at schools that I already have a pretty good shot of getting into.
