I'm trying to make as much money as possible, since I spent my last two summers doing unpaid internships and it'd be nice to not eat crackers and rice all year once school starts. But I have no idea how to go about doing that, since I'm coming straight out of undergrad and my politics/history degree doesn't get me much in the way of summer employment. Any ideas?

I'm thinking about getting a nice, glamorous warehouse job during the day and maybe trying to wait tables in the evening. I'd travel and have an easy summer before signing away my soul to law school if I could, but my financial situation likely won't permit me to do so. Thus, I'll continue to hunt for whatever job(s) will allow me to make the most money this summer!

This thread scares me... It makes the whole law school thing feel real... Loll

I was thinking about doing an internship actually... Does anyone know whether you can apply for a legal (law student) internship before law school?

working. I might move to the area in the law school that I choose a couple of months before as I work for a large retail chain that has stores literally everywhere, so that's an option. Most likely I will be working as a lifeguard because I get paid 12 dollars an hour, so I can't beat that.

Working for an airline so I can do both the traveling and capital-building :)
Looks like Germany and Malaysia are the two vacation destinations before September!

Moving back to America from the UK, getting married, going on a 6 week backpacking trip around Asia, and then coming home to deal with finding housing. Also, I will probably read extensively for pleasure for what is sure to be the last time for the next 3-ish years. :)

Working. Reading books about law and law school. I've already read law school confidential. Next is probably getting to maybe.
Not a gunner though.

Thru Hiking the Appalachian Trail. I leave March 1st.

Pros: Adventure of a lifetime, great real-world experience I can talk about, will get me in good shape, last chance before law school starts.

Cons: Coordinating loans while in the woods, applying for scholarships while in the woods, finding a Boston apartment while in the woods, etc...

uh oh.

Traveling... Or working at a lobbying firm in DC. Probably the latter, hopefully the former.

Quit my jerb in December - have a family situation that needed some assistance, plus doing some volunteering back home. Hopefully a fabulous Balkan vacation this summer. :)

I'm about to start looking for serving jobs to do in the evenings so I can save enough money to quit in June and travel. Haven't been on a loliday in so long

Hopefully travelling. But it's a really good question - am starting to think about options now and it is scary how 'real' it is all becoming.

Sub-question, if you're moving for law school - when in the summer do you think you'll move?

Summer starter in Michigan here. But generally speaking, for the time before law school starts: travel around Asia and Europe, finish my novel, skim "Getting to Maybe", drink, drink, and drink.

I'll be there about 10-15 days before school starts. But everything is new to me so I definitely need more time to get used to than most people.

Before July 1st, B/C that's when my lease here expires. Fortunately (unfortunately?) my company is letting me work from home for the last couple of months.
