I know that the DA hires a lot of students and grooms them for positions during law school, but I have no real interest in working as a prosecutor. I would really like to get a position at a PD office next summer and hopefully hire in somewhere when I finish with school in '08.
Thanks. Yeah, I think it is impractical to live in California without some Spanish background anyway, and picking up Spanish enhances your prospects quite a bit. For the languages I have attempted to learn (to varying degrees), Latin has been hands down the most difficult. Saying quite a bit, since Thai is included in that list. I've attempted the rolled R a handful of times when being given mini lessons by friends. That will definitely be the major challenge.
