    Good luck on the MPRE! You’ve got this! I took the November one and it was harder than I expected, but I still passed comfortably and I know you will too.

  2. Caitlin says:

    Hmmm. I have a really complicated relationship with my DC internship past. Did the experiences I gained in my two internships out of college lead to my job today? Yes, absolutely, in a surprisingly linear way. Is it unethical to not pay people despite the fact that they are working full time, 40 hours jobs? Yes… almost absolutely.

    The first think tank didn’t pay me beyond a monthly $100 Metro stipend, and the second nonprofit (kind of unusually) was able to eek out minimum wage for its 4 interns as stipulated in its program contract with the State Department. This technically put me better off than the Pathways [unpaid] internship program that the State Department runs…

    “DC” as a governmental and intellectual capital is carried on the backs of the underpaid. Having lived through it, I understand the value of internships, but… for goodness sake, just pay your workers, this shouldn’t be so hard.
