I would do big-law, but I am not big law or bust. I would be happy with a government job paying $70,000-100,000, but with no debt. If I went to Cornell, I will be biglaw or bust because I will have 110,000 to pay back.
1. Government jobs probably aren't paying 70k, let alone 100k.
2. Government jobs are tough to get.
3. It is feasible to pay back 110k on a 50k salary, though not ideal.
4. You need a more realistic estimation of what is going to happen to you if you strike out of biglaw.
Thats what I got from my research as well, but I let people say as they will. I want feedback and posters are giving it to me. It is much appreciated.
