Summer Classes or Internship?

Postby cnjorda » Fri Jun 14, 2013 5:33 pm

I'm starting a part-time evening program this fall. Should I take summer classes this year so it doesn't take me four years to graduate? Or is an internship more valuable?

If you are aspiring for a job position that requires a J.D., then do an internship. If you want to hurry up and finish with your J.D. and don't necessarily have a preference for J.D. requiring positions upon graduation, take summer classes.

An internship is more valuable. If you have to, maybe you can find an internship that'll let you work part-time, or maybe just for 6 weeks (then you could take classes the rest of the summer).
