Any recommendations on anyone helping with the full school application process like resume and ps?
Honestly, IMO most of these services are unnecessary unless you have specific circumstances that look bad on your resume, C & F issues, bad grades/withdrawals or the like.

Can save yourself a boatload of money by doing it yourself and asking the advice of a few ppl you know. Will def be more work though so that's your call.

Thanks for all the responses.
So it seems the general consensus here is that to start, you definitely have to expect long work weeks. Iím ok with this for a number of years. I donít have a problem working hard for a few years, I just donít want to go down a path that entails 10+ hours a day, 6 days a week, plus commute, for the next 30 odd years. That is too much. A few years of it is certainly fine.
What Iím trying to get a good sense of is, what is the likelihood of getting these internal legal jobs, or other job that has more reasonable hours.
Is it a bad idea to go down this path if I donít want to do big law long term.

Lots of people believed this.  But, once you start, it is very hard to take the big drop in income even if its accompanied with better hours.  Ask Big Firm senior associates/Counsel.

Yes, that was what I was attempting to convey. Where is this giant herd of people going to law school?
It's the proportion of people going to school in relation to the jobs available.

Every school pushes you to more of the same: higher and higher education. At some point, you want to get off the train, and get a career.

If law school is right for you, go get'em.

I am a second year law student at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on good places to apply for legal internships this summer. Does anyone know of any good intern positions that are opening up?

Many NYC agencies are still running their internship programs and it's great experience if you're interested in public service. It's a little early for summer internships, but feel free to PM me closer to the summer.
