LegalJob gave this advice last night as part of career panel speaking to GW law students. If working at a firm is something you are interested in, it will be helpful for you to demonstrate focus and commitment as early as possible.
LegalJob was asked the question below (personal facts deleted) and the answer reiterates and ties together the past couple of posts. Many seem to have similar questions so LegalJob posts below the response provided in the Monday Mailbag series.
This basic but important question is unfortunately not one of the questions LegalJob is asked. In many cases, associates have no clue what to do but do not know to ask this question (and even who to ask) until late in their first year or even later.
I am not sure if LegalJob can help but my question has to do with getting into law school. I am on the waitlist at [a top twenty law school]. Does LegalJob have any advice for how I can increase my chances of getting in?
