Perception of summer job in transfer application

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Apr 01, 2013 7:56 pm

I'm trying to decide whether to work for the local DA or a health care system in my state. Either one would be fine, but I'm wondering if one might be more impressive than the other in terms of transferring. I know this can't be a big factor, but it might count for something.

I'm trying to make a decision, and I'm on the fence, so I was hoping this might help. Thanks.

Here is what matters a) class rank b) for public whether you are in state c) connection to school or city d) mayb impressive sifts but probably not

Your 1l job is not part of the equation.

Class rank/GPA are realistically what will matter. LOR's can help if really good, or from a professor who attended the school you're applying to. Some schools like to see a connection, many don't care-but this can be explained in your personal statement. Personal statement won't make an application, but if it's complete shit it can break it.

Only a particularly prestigious 1L job will make any difference. Think competitive A3/USAO internship or V20 firm. Just make sure you do something.
