Any advise on how to do this since I've had no luck so far. Also applied for a couple volunteer positions. I've got a very good scholarship and have already wasted a lot of time so I really would like to start this fall. If I had known this would be that big of an issue I would've done something before. One question I have is can I put helping with the family business on my resume? I actually did do this a bit throughout college/after graduating. I wasn't getting paid or anything, since my parents already paid for college/will help with law school, but I did do some work.
Your family has a business, why didn't you do work for them the past two years so you have some work experience? Don't lie on your resume, but If you did work for the business after graduating definitely put it down so there is not a two year gap. Either way, you should probably get at least a year of work experience before going to law school
