I applied this cycle, but anticipate that it won't turn out well. I am moving on to Plan B --> retaking LSAT in sept & applying super early next cycle.
I'm trying to be positive and see this delay as an opportunity to gain a little real world experience before jumping into law school (I am in undergrad).
Can anyone on this board suggest specific nonprofit organizations that might be appropriate for inexperienced 001Ls like me? I'm looking for an internship/volunteer experience that will actually be meaningful and will give me at least a small window into the legal field. Am I asking too much as a lowly 001L? Are these opportunities reserved for law students? Should I try working as a non-paid research assistant for a prof?
Short version of q: What kind of meaningful (nonpaid) work opportunities are available for prelaw recent college grads?
This is really an open book, you can do almost whatever you want if youre willing to do it for free. I suggest think of something that is personally meaningful to you, that you'd enjoy doing fr a year and then talk about it in a personal statement or addendum. It doesnt have to be law related for adcomms to find it meaningful, interesting, and valuable
