OCI Employer Perception of Evening Students?

Postby Thedude737 » Wed Jul 27, 2011 3:40 pm

I'm an evening student in a T3 school and just finished my first year in the top 9% and made law review. I work full time as a paralegal in a small medical malpractice defense firm and post graduation, I would love to move on to bigger and better (maybe not better) things. My school typically has evening students participate in OCI the summer after their second full year.

How do employers perceive evening students? Will I stand out because I've been successful in my first year and hopefully second year of law school while maintaining a full time job? Or will I be looked down upon because I'm not a full time student? I'd love some advice from other evening students in similar positions.

Oops, I may have misstated facts. I meant to say a 3rd tier school, not a top 3 school.

How do you think about medical malpractice, big money?
