Law school and public policy

Work experience enhances a professional school application.

  • Professional schools value the maturity that comes from real-world experience. Therefore -- unless you know exactly what you want to do and a post-graduate education is necessary immediately, consider taking a few years off before heading to professional school.
  • Work experience helps you clarify your academic and professional goals; and will help you make better choices about your program. "Matching" your interests with that of the professional school is much more important now than it was as an undergraduate.
  • Start exploring professional schools 12-15 months in advance of your planned enrollment.
