I'm leaning towards the job w/ the District Judge...
.. but I'll see what else comes up!

The question has been updated :

The dilemma:

  • U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District NY
  • Magistrate Judge's chambers, Eastern District NY
  • District Judge's chambers, Southern District NY



1. Career services / Internship office
2. Direct mail
3. Networking (professors, judges, lawyers)

I have been neglecting the board since I left the Pre-Law discussion, but now I hope for help.

The dilemma: summer job at the U.S. Attorney's Office (Civil Divison, Eastern District) or at a Magistrate Judge's chambers or at a District Judge's chambers (Southern District)?

What are your thoughts?  [Please don't tell me "depends on your interests", etc.  I want real OPINIONS!!]  Both internships / externships are obviously unpaid but will offer credit for the time, and location/commute is not an issue.

If you were making the choice, which would you choose and why?
Is one job any more "impressive" than the other (resume-wise)?

I missed W&M's call on Friday, but they called back on Saturday.  Initially it seemed like they were updating their waitlist - they asked if I was still interested, how I was doing this semester, if my plans were set for next semester, if I'd accept if I got into W&M.  I guess I answered correctly, cuz she then made the offer.

Good luck to everyone else!
