Kennedyposter, are you considering Oklahoma? Your comment on the Cambridge program made me think you are. We have a great Oxford program summer after 1L. I have absolutely loved my 1L year, and many of my friends are going over for the summer. It allows you to do the first 6 weeks of the summer working (a normal firm duration) and still study abroad. Everyone who has done it has really really loved it.

Nevermind, I looked at your LSN link. No matter. You shouldn't worry about studying abroad at the school you are considering. You should be able to work the first half of the summer as well, giving you an opportunity to do both.

, it will be part of a story you will not be able to tell a prospective employer at an interview because those slots will go to the students who demonstrated they were willing to play the game that they are expected to as law students. 

Not if you go to a school that does not pre-screen at OCI.

Seriously though, grades are 80% of the calculus.
