  9. QUALITY OF ACTION • Will what your group does do some real good? • Is what your group does respected by others? Have others seen results? • Will what your group does look good on my resume / law school application?

  10. QUALITY OF ORGANIZATION • Is there a strong, logical leadership structure and function? Business culture? • Is your organization efficient and well run? Your meetings? • Is your organization well staffed? • Is there opportunity for more responsibility / future leadership?

  11. QUALITY OF IMAGE • Are eloquent, passionate speakers representing your group? • Quick and professional responses to solicitations from students, community members, other groups • Does your project have professional ‘packaging’? • Your website is your public face
