How much does work experience help

Postby BobSacamono » Fri Aug 12, 2011 6:01 pm

173 LSAT
3.6 from Ohio State
7 years full time experience in NYC. 3 years at a small firm specializing in torts followed by 4 years in-house at a very large corporation. Mostly corporate law but pretty varied experience.
A large amount of volunteer as well.

Wondering if the WE gives me have any kind of a shot at CCN or any chance at money at MVPDNCG.

I don't think the work experience will matter much, you've got pretty good numbers.

It may put you in better contention for CCN. I got NYU with 172/3.5/5 years of quality WE while others with my numbers didn't. Based purely on my own experiences, working for a longer period of time usually results in less money at schools that use a merit/need combo (kids coming straight through literally have negative net worth), and will have no effect at merit only schools.
