U of Texas - Austin / Re: Advice Needed

The "Leg Up" was just for knowledge, not for the actuall admittance to college.  Thanks a lot for the advice though.  I like the idea of doing what I want, considering I will be in a career stance pretty much right after 1L from what I understand.  Great idea on the writing skills also, it seems to be an extrordinarily important skill all around.  Plus I would be able to rack up more money from being a waitor or something rather than "emptying trash cans" as we have heard from previous quotes.

Yes, I am a Texas state resident.  I know I still need to "demolish" the LSAT still though as my GPA is a tad lower than the top eschelon of acedamia.  Thanks for the advice on retaking courses, I'll look into it.

One more thing though, are there such things as 0L law student summer/year jobs?  Ive got a good year to work with and I need a menial job as it stands now, so my thoughts were to go ahead and start getting a "leg up" on the competition and have a job so that I can survive the "in-between time until law school starts." 

Sorry to bug you guys, but the people in the pre-law side, are incredibly disorganized, plus you guys/gals have the experience.  The pre law is like talking to highschool grads just after the SAT, argh!

thanks alot guys,

Hey Guys/Gals,

My name is Josh.  I have just come back from a 6mth - 1yr stead in Thailand, and have to start worrying about law school as my education abroad will wrap up shortly at the beginning of 2007.  My question, is how do I get a job with a law firm as a 0L law student?  I have 1.5 yrs until; I start Law school and have plenty of options everywhere else as far as norma;l jobs go, but I would rather take a pay cut and go ahead and work for a law firm in some semi-menial job.  Any advice?  Keep in mind this is all assuming that I will make it into Law school as well.
