However, Finn abruptly breaks up with her in Hell-O.
Their relationship rises up again in Journey and ends in Special Education when Rachel finds out that Finn slept with Santana, while Rachel was with Jesse; therefore, Rachel retaliates by making out with Puck.

Rachel worked as a paralegal for five years before finally achieving an LSAT score high enough for Columbia Law School.
