Paralegal WE vs Teaching Abroad

Postby Moomoo2u » Tue Jul 19, 2011 7:54 pm

Hi all,

I just spent my 1st year out of undergrad teaching abroad and might go back. I have offers to either work for Kaplan or for a firm in NYC.

I'm currently working at a different firm in NY.

Would working as a paralegal or for Kaplan be looked upon more favorably by admissions than returning abroad to teach?

Thanks

I don't think it's going to really matter either way... Just go with what you want to do most.

Won't matter much for admissions, but I think paralegal is create WE in terms of the learning experience. It's also pretty much the one way pre-law school to get a decent idea if you'll like practicing law.

You should do whichever you liked, but paralegal WE def. gives you a good idea of whether or not law school is something you really want to do. If you're already sure law is what you want then the only advantage I could see to beinga paralegal would be potential recommendations and connections for future networking -- both of which are pretty valuable.
