Can you elaborate on your public interest background?

Monday, November 24 2014 at 03:47 AM

For privacy reasons, I don't want to go into much more detail than what I already have. I have several years of work experience in private, gov, and nonprofit sectors and a related graduate degree.

Hah! They have *three* different clinics in the type of law I want to practice. That's the only thing that would bring me out there: my insatiable geekery.

Did you apply to BC's public interest scholarship?

No, I didn't apply for it. I don't want a scholarship that comes with a moral obligation to repay if my professional plans change.

You might want to check your spam filter re BC - both me and someone I know with the same status as me/us have already gotten scholarship information from them, it just went straight to spam.
