I am 27 years old and my experiences after college (at Univ of Texas) have been varied. I worked as a media planner at a big firm here in New York, and after that for the past two years I have been a commercial Voiceover actor. Now I am focused on the law degree I chose to not pursue straight out of college. I have practically no law firm experience, and to make a long story short, I just want to know:
- Is it necessary to try and get a job at a law firm in order to get into good schools?
- Do they even look at that as a requirement? What kinds of jobs do law schools like to see on an applicant's resume?
- Finally, is the fact that my pursuits post-college have been so varied a disadvantage?
Let me know, because I am currently looking into getting a legal assistant-type job to beef up my resume before applying for 2011.
