Looking for a full ride was more a curiosity, although LSN gave more hope than ya'll. Either way, I'm pretty sure I don't want biglaw. Legal work interests the hell out of me, especially the academic side, but I don't know that courtroom work will. In fact, I could easily see myself trying to parlay into business or something after school, if courtroom work is awful as it sounds. Needless to say, my opinion of "paperwork lawyers" is even lower.
Not to say I don't want to be a lawyer, or that I'm attending law school with another aim in mind, but from looking around here I've realized that what I need most from my legal education are options. So many people either find themselves jobless and depressed, or in Biglaw but hating, or in the public defenders office but unable to handle the stress, that I know I need exits if this proves true for myself.
And no, I'm not pissed. In fact, I received very few B's in college, but a couple of C's really killed me, as did attending an undergrad that didn't offer pluses. In retrospect, I would have worked harder, but didn't, and I'm not concerned with rewriting history. I'm just moving forward and looking for the best plan open to me.
