I can't even get a job that doesn't pay.
« on: February 27, 2009, 08:11:18 PM »
I am in the top half of my class at a Top 100 law school and I can't even get a job that does NOT pay.

WTF is wrong with this world.

You do realize your avatar and sig say what school you go to right? You don't need to tell us it's a "top 100" school. Although I get the impression McGeorge is barely hanging on to that status.

Don't your schools have any type of summer clinical / judicial internship / research assistant programs?  It's like impossible at my school not to be able to do something legal during the summer if you don't mind working for free.
