But the finger-crossing paid off. I found out today that I'll be interning with The New Republic in Washington, DC for the summer. The internship is unpaid, but if we write something they print we'll get paid like freelancers (so not much, but something). I'll still be broke after this summer, but I'll be a broke person with some great experiences. Woo-hoo!

Broke but Experienced
The usual race for summer employment for law students begins when first semester grades are given. That means a lot of my classmates have had their summer plans in place for months. Although magazines and newspapers do offer summer internships, their timelines are way different from legal ones. Most of my friends had employment figured out months ago, and I was still crossing my fingers over Spring Break.
