I am having a hard time swallowing the idea of the debt I'd get at Seton Hall at the moment, so I am considering waiting until next year, retaking the LSAT and applying again if I don't get off the U of MN or UW Madison waiting lists. I would want to work in the legal field for a year, but I'm not sure what type of job to get. I have undergrad debt, so I need something that pays fairly well (like $35,000+) just to pay the bills. What legal jobs am I qualified for (undergrad in Genetics, 2 years post college work experience)? What job titles should I be searching for?
I'm in the same boat. And to add to the mix, my GPA is pretty low (just a hair below 3).I'm trolling craigslist and monster right now. On monster, there are a total of 4 jobs with experience requirements below a year. one of them requires an EE degree.
I suggest not trying to obtain a legal job if you're trying to use it as a bump in ls admissions. Id go with oen that pays the most or is most interesting to you AND give you ample time to study for lsats. Paralegal/legal assistant/project assistant jobs are not that exciting or challenging. It is very monotonous.
