I found this flowchart both eye-opening and clarifying. It is complicated, but worth reading every path if you are thinking about going to law school for any reason: money, prestige, desire to effect social change, stability, or simply, because you aren’t really sure what you want to do after you graduate.
I ran across this while reading a piece in Vitae, a higher-education career site, written by a recent college grad who considered going to law school because he wanted to pursue social change. Although he got in to several top law programs, he decided not to go. You can read about his decision-making process, which includes many useful links for those facing the same decision, here.

I received a note from Michael Wiles, a representative from Rowman & Littlefield, a trade scholarly publisher based in Lanham, MD. They are looking for three interns: in editorial, production, and marketing. Last year, Kate Tafelski (’14) got an internship there…and they eventually offered her a full-time job as an assistant editor! A great entry for Kate into the world of publishing. And now they think highly of Loyola English majors!
Here’s a link to the HR page with the internship descriptions: https://rowman.com/Page/HR
I have forwarded the note from Mr. Wiles and the descriptions themselves to Dr. Forni, this year’s Internship Coordinator.
