advice please
« on: July 03, 2009, 02:17:58 PM »
I am currently pursuing my bachelors degree, and I work in retail. Do you think it would be worth while to also get a certificate in paralegal studies to get my foot in the door or just stick with my relatively low-stress retail job through the remainder of my undergrad and ls.

I look forward to any and all advice.

I would say that you should only get the certificate in paralegal studies if it something that truly fascinates you. Otherwise, you are better served sticking to your current plan and getting the highest GPA that you can. A small increase in GPA will have more effect on your admission chances than the fact that you received a certificate in paralegal studies.
