Question on LOCIs...if you're currently waitressing full-time since graduating a semester early, should you mention that? or does that not sound impressive enough for CLS?
I'd mention it. At least you're working?
I actually think that working in a service industry like waitressing is very important for aspiring professionals. Too many people go through their lives and never do this, and ultimately they just become unsocial dickheads.
It depends on what your logic is for sending the LOCI. If you have a good reason to be sending them extra paperwork, and how that ties in, then I would say go for it. But if you are just ending them an LOCI to send them something...
If possible, I'd phrase it based on what else you're maybe handling in the meanwhile, a la "I've also been _______, all while working full-time." Maybe some community service, or something else on the side? Just a thought. No disrespect to making some money!
Like 7ED says, it's maybe not a reason in and of itself to send a LOCI, but if you can talk about how that experience relates to you wanting to go to CLS or something, then I don't see how it can hurt.
OK thanks for the quick replies!! Yeah I was going to frame it like I want to attend CLS because it offers XYZ clinics/programs, my interest/experiences with respect to XYZ make me a good fit, oh and since i sent in my app I earned a 4.0 during my last semester, gradutated with honors, and am currently waitressing full-time, am interning at a law firm, etc.
