So I'm applying to NYU (top choice school) and have the chance of either work experience in a doctor's office or a law firm. I'm applyin to CAS for International Relations, which one should I do?

    Reminds me of the old joke that the smartest kid goes to med school, while the dumber one goes to law school....

    The WORK experience is more important than the venue. What would you be doing at each place? Would one be a more responsible position than the other? Dealing directly with people would be the more impressive position than say filing or custodial work at the other.

    time in a doctor's office and it does involve dealing directly with people so i'll stick to that :)
