Quote from: lincolnsgrandson on September 28, 2005, 11:43:00 PMABA limits full-time students to working no more than 20 hours per week. Some schools have stricter standards. A first year student gave me the tour at UConn in April. She claimed that she worked 30 hours a week and that she was a full-time student. Don't ask me how or why. Actually, she said something about needing the money, so I guess that's the why. One of her jobs was working in the admissions office and giving tours, so the law school was apparently well-aware of the number of hours she worked. She must have been some sort of exception.If I was going to work at all, I would only do 5-10 hours a week. I'm not an idiot. I prob won't even do that. (Not saying she's an idiot. She apparently has different goals in mind. Also, she was very nice.)

UNLESS you're in need of the $$$, I would not do it. I have a few people in my class and they work as well. Frankly I'm not sure how they do it although I know some of them take a lot of these energy drinks and things like that!I was offered a job at my school as well in my 1L but after thinknig about it I realized I didn't want to take even the slightest risk of jeopordizing anything in my first year since the grades are so important. It's not worth it. Just take into account what's important.
