I hope it's love. But I'm straight from undergrad, graduating in 3 years instead of 4, so we'll see where that puts me. Are you a few years out of UG?
Yeah, I've been out for 3 years. Got a MA and been working at a non-profit.
I'd think the early graduation could be a positive (Don't think it could be a negative)-- it could be read as showing you're a hard worker, etc... And dang it would be nice be graduated as a JD at the age of 24.
That would be nice. But as you bring up you get professional advantages to having work experience. I have an internship in Parliament under my belt and a part-time job, but in no way is that the same as having interviewed or having participated in a full-time job search. The lack of work experience is my number one concern for me.
Edit: Also, graduating from UG at Michigan on my 21st birthday is a sad, sad thing.
Is interning at Parliament equivalent in terms of prestige + experience to working on the hill? Cause that is a solid soft.
Bummer about 21. I turned 21 while studying abroad, so I didn't even notice it.
