If you are gunning for big law, especially if you are coming from a t-20 regional ie. GW, BU, BC, is study abroad over the summer detrimental to your big law efforts? I am thinking that time is crucial for internship and work experience at vault firms. However, I am also very interested in summer abroad, particularly BU's HK program. Thoughts?
Detrimental? Eh, probably not, but if I were ranking everything you could do over 1L summer, study abroad would be the next to last thing I would do, just above taking summer classes at school without doing anything else.
What you do 1L summer doesn't matter as long as you do something, but somethings don't matter worse than other things don't matter. Doing study abroad sends a signal that you weren't able to get something better, which may be unfair because some schools require you to commit to the summer abroad early in the school year before you've started looking at anything else, but that's the perception.
