What exactly do you mean by "energy trading?"
You also are bilingual, which is an important and marketable skill, especially since we do extensive trade with Korea.
I would go to Pace, and focus on international trade classes, since there's probably more trade work in NYC. Focus on that area, and leverage your korean language and cultural skills.
Yes, North Korea is one of our biggest trade partners.
#1. North Korea and South Korea speak the same language #2. She never said she was from North Korea#3. South Korea is one of our biggest trading partners To the OP: Hate to say it, but it is highly unlikely you will get a job doing what you want coming out of Pace unless you are VERY lucky. We are talking a 10% chance at best. That said, most people change their minds once they start law school. Just make sure you go in with all the info. As for Florida Coastal, it's beyond the pale. It's not that it's lowly ranked. There are T4 schools that are fairly well established in their communities and get their grads good entry level jobs- Florida Coastal is not one of them. Your question: what is the difference between T4 and T3? Basically a silly magazine. However, there are worlds of variation within those two categories U.S. News has. Once you get to T2 territory and below, U.S. news becomes worse and worse at accurately reflecting school quality (not that it is that great at the top)
Weird, I wouldn't really consider South Korea one of our major trading partners in comparison to Canada, China, Mexico, etc. Furthermore, the OP did not state "South Korea." Don't assume the OP meant either one.

Don't assume the OP meant either one. Are you stupid? Of the 195 countries in the entire world, South Korea is our 7th largest trading partner. South Korea isn't a "major trading partner". What the hell are kids smoking nowadays?? Holy poo
Canada, major trading partner, South Korea, minor trading partner. That is all, please carry on.

Sure, Canada is way bigger than Korea, but I wouldn't call Korea minor by any stretch.
Yes, yes, yes. Daewoo is so impressive. There is a major drop off in our trading our top six trading partners. Calling a country that makes up .5% of our trade a "major" partners is not correct. That is like calling Daewoo a major player in the car business. Are they a player, sure? Are they a major player like the Big Three, Toyota, etc? No.
