LSAT tutoring does but you need to be able to get into Princeton or Kaplan. In my city you need connections to do so...because it's such an illustrious job.

I found a job with my undergrad university for the summer. Does your school hire graduating seniors for temp positions?


Not sure - I'd prefer not to be in my university town for the summer though... it's completely dead. I'll look into Princeton/Kaplan though

Now that is luck. Our HR department figured this out a loooong time ago and only allows us to carry over 10 days from the previous year (out of 4 weeks per year not including holidays, sick time, etc.). Thankfully my 'anniversary' date is the beginning of June, so I can accrue some time on top of that during the summer and receive a nice payout right before I start in the fall.

FYI: if you've got a 99th percentile score, there are a lot of companies that pay a lot better than Kaplan (I work for one). It is really, really fun to teach.

ETA: My partner and I are going on a 2-month trip abroad. Cannot wait to leave the country (but so much to do before we go!).


Yeah, I think I'd like to do this. Can you actually just do it for a summer though? When do the classes run? I'd only be home May through August. I feel like they wouldn't invest the training in someone who is only around for three months.

Quitting my FT job at the end of May and heading to Australia for a month to see family. Throwing a weeklong Thailand trip in there too before coming back to reality. Will spend a couple weeks packing and having fun at home before roadtripping it across the country.

I gave my boss 3 months notice (that's what he asked me for) but everyone at my current job (I work at a law firm) knows about my plans. They even asked me to write a job description so they could find a replacement.

Aren't you applying next cycle, hence not TLS class of 2015? Or do I have you confused for someone else.

11 day trip to London and Italy, home for a two weeks, month being a counselor at a summer camp at UCLA (yay pocket money), three more weeks home, then back to UCLA for law-school-fun-forevermore.
