1L job search / Working during academic year.
« on: February 24, 2008, 03:14:39 PM »
I got a fairly sweet job offer for my 1L summer, pay is good and good experience. There is a catch however and it requires a yearlong commitment with 12-18 hours of work during the academic year. Does anyone out there have experience working these kinds of hours during the school year? I'm particularly worried because I'm planning on joining a journal and I don't want this to negatively influence my grades or ability to participate in law review.

Averaging 15 hours a week seems like it would be a real pain in the ass and I'd have to select classes for next year that work around a schedule, rather than selecting classes that I'm interested in. The extra cash flow during the school year would be nice, but I'm not sure it would be worth it.

Any advice?
