I had a couple questions on how various law schools will view these activities.
I have recently been accepted into a Congressional Fellowship program, and everything sounds like it will be pretty exciting and worthwhile experience while I am in D.C. What I was wondering is, how is this E.C. viewed by law schools. I know it is just a soft, but I could imagine that schools in D.C. get this kind of stuff all the time. Would midwest schools or schools out west value this experience more? less?
Also I have been interning with a firm in chicago for the past three summers. I have worked about 4 months each time, and have logged in more meaningful minutes every time I have come back. Do schools only value this as another soft? Or will some see this as legitimate work experience. Technically I have worked for over a year for this firm, just not in one lump sum. How will they view this? Thanks the help and input!
