OK, here's my problem. I've been taking German for 7 years now, and am about as proficient as I can be in the language without having spent any time abroad. I could continue in German next year, but I've also considered dropping it and starting Chinese due to my personal interest in that region and also its current and future importance. Another option would be to continue with the German, then do a Fulbright to Germany or Austria next year. Which of these options would be best both in terms of law school admissions and future importance to a legal career? Also, if you think doing the Fulbright would be the best option, do you think I should wait to apply to law school until AFTER I have that on my resume? (In other words, would the Fulbright make my law school app look better or would it not matter that much?) Thanks in advance!
