Try some of the businesses in Boston; may have an intern program.  Like New Balance, TJ Max.

My agency just opened applications for (unpaid) summer internships in NYC. See the attachment for details.

Anyone know how long it takes LSAC to process CAS report after receiving transcript?
When I applied, it took around a day for the material to be ready. But I had not already sent out an application that was pending the report.

Mine was sent with Fedex to arrive Tuesday 10am. Still not showing up as received...
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

If you have top grades/school, canvass the big firms for the few 1L jobs out there. The $$ (and lunches) are amazing for a very cushy position and to boot, will give you a legup come OCI. Otherwise, doesn't really matter what you do, as long as it is something worth talking about come OCI. I interned for a family court judge in Brooklyn (found through a friend who interned the summer before) and conducted research for a prof.

I'm close to finishing TTI/Excelsior's liberal arts degree. Does anyone have any experience using it to go to law school?

Sure, Get a 170+ on your LSAT and go to just about any school you want. Assuming you have a 4.0 gpa or close to it.

And if you’re assuming wrong?

Then it's tougher. You can google the range of gpa and lsat for each school. If you have a low gpa I personally wouldn't recommend law school. Unless you don't want big law and are ok working 9-5 for a Goverment salary.
