Application “Geography”: Beyond The Horizon Of The Personal Statement.

Tuesday, October 9th 2018

4:30 pm – 5:30 pm in Hillcrest 103

While you may be stressing and struggling with the writing and editing of a law school personal statement, your application “journey” often includes mastering a range of written submissions. In this session, two admissions deans will take you on a “trip” exploring the challenges (and opportunities) in crafting:

* Diversity Statements

* Character/ Fitness Disclosures

* “Why ‘X’ Law School?” Questions

* Academic/Testing Addenda

This session will get you to start thinking about how each of these submissions provides you an opportunity to strengthen your application, even when you might be explaining a weakness! In this interactive and relaxed discussion format, we will share some examples of application submissions that, while not always coming in for a perfect landing , still provide lessons on effective ways to navigate sometimes difficult waters.

New J-term academic internship: Health Policy in Action

Professor Jessica Holmes will be offering a new JTerm academic internship course called “Health Policy in Action”. Perfect for students interested in health care, public policy, and/or government affairs  This course will combine a four day/week internship (Tuesday-Friday) at a Vermont health care organization with one day/week in the classroom (Mondays 9-11), providing the opportunity to apply liberal arts learning to real-world experience in addressing critical issues facing the state of Vermont and its citizens. Students will work with local organizations on specific topics such drug-reimportation, hospital-produced environmental waste, food insecurity and diabetes, childhood trauma, health policy legislation in the VT statehouse, physician burnout, hospital quality, and workforce shortages. Class time will be spent debriefing the internship experience, building skills relevant to health policy analysis and working on the research project. Grading will be based on participation, evaluation by internship sponsor, evidence of personal growth, and performance on final research project.

Enrollment in the course is by approval only. Interested applicants must submit a resume to Professor Jessica Holmes (jholmes@middlebury.edu with subject line JTERM) and a short online application (LINK to app is here: https://goo.gl/forms/CJ5IaN5J0fLcvJLb2) by October 20.

Please note: The College has rented a shared house for students doing internships in Montpelier/Waterbury.  There are some funds to defray travel expenses (gas and/or ACTR to Burlington) and we will cover hotel accommodations in Burlington during bad weather. Some students may be asked to offer short rides to/from work for others without cars.

Below you will find more specific information about the internships available. If you have questions, please reach out to Professor Jessica Holmes (jholmes@middlebury.edu).
