HOW CAN I MAKE MYSELF A STRONG CANDIDATE FOR LAW SCHOOL?
Law schools will be most interested in your grades and your LSAT score.  But admissions committees will be comparing you to many other applicants who will have those same grades and scores.  Thus, they must also consider other factors such as your work experiences, your extracurricular activities, and your unique background.  You should not feel compelled to join every club.  Instead, opt for one or two outside interests and become deeply involved in those areas.  Law schools desire applicants who demonstrate sustained commitment; it does not matter if that commitment is to a particular cause, to a sport, to the school newspaper, or to an instrument.  Internships, including jobs in a legal field, are valuable because they allow you to explore career options, but they do not necessarily increase your chances of being admitted to law school.  Working as a paralegal before attending law school will allow you to observe law firm life but will not make it easier for you to get into law school.
