SEO is an entire program catered to minorities whereas the job search isn't.  All I'm saying is it seems to be a relatively easy way to make a few dollars and get a foot in the doorway--if you are going to devote some of your time to working this summer anyway, might as well get the name on your resume.

Well, I was only going to work until June.  I'm going to JA in July for a couple of weeks and I want to go to Greece.  So I don't plan on really being here for the summer.  I just want to relax the summer before ls.

Oh thats fun.  Certainly more fun than my summer.  

The only thing I would say is in addition to the job opportunities they have made an attempt to integrate law school prep into the program including providing study aids etc.  While I tend to be skeptical of such programs the fact that you would be getting paid to get supplements/class materials/exam advice sounds great to me, but I have no idea how long the program is or if you'd be able to integrate these travel plans

THat's the main problem...in addition to the fact that I just want to be lazy before ls  ;D

I say work the summer before law school if that's what you're accustomed to doing with your summers.  If you're looking to get into the corporate world, do SEO.  A solid number of my 1L friends here at HLS did SEO and they already have offers to go back to their firms (and some to go to other firms) as a result.  Good deal.

If you're not sure about the firm route, may I suggest USDOJ for the summer before law school?

I plan on working at my current job right up until law school, only taking 2-3 weeks off.  I've been working full time since June 05.  I also worked every summer in college with only a 2 week vacation during the summer and 1 week before school.  Is this a bad idea?  I don't really want to take tons of time off because I want to save as much money as possible because I plan to graduate debt free.

If it's what you're used to, go ahead.  I'm a huge workaholic during the academic year (not next year, though), but I love me some vacation time 8).

Can't afford it  :P  My parents paid the tuition bills, my job was to work all summer to pay living expenses.  I didn't work during the school year, so that I (presumably) could devote my time to schoolwork.

Makes sense.  It would be nice to take some time off before law school, though.  People hit the ground running full speed.  Especially if you go to a school with grades ;).

I'd take a month off.  I believe in graduating debt free but you also don't want to run yourself ragged.

I had a GREAT time doing SEO this past summer.  I was one of the interns at Cleary
