I appreciate the encouragement, but I do not have a year to burn here. That being said, I am going to try my luck with asking for some more scholarship money. I don't think it is as black and white as X schools get jobs, Y schools do not. If I work incredibly hard, network well, and be involved as possible, I am sure that some job prospects will arise (even if they do not start in the 100k range). I know a lot of you guys are masochists, but I am quite sick of the LSAT and I simply will not sit for it again. Anyway, I really appreciate the advice offered so far!
Why do you absolutely have to go to law school next year? What is forcing you to do so?
Trust me, I was in a similar position. Three years ago I turned down a full scholly from a school (conditioned on working 1 year and getting experience) for a half-scholly from another school. I figured since I could get biglaw anyway there was no point to waiting a year, since any job I could get wouldn't be worth an extra year of biglaw salary even with the scholly factored in. Now I have 75K more in debt than I would have had and still no job with two months to graduation. Make the smart choice here, you'll be glad you took the year.
