Let's say studying law at St. John's doesn't yield any fruitful job opportunities, would sacrificing 3 years of my life learning about the law, metting people, experiencing New York really be that crippling of a career move?
Yes, because in addition to sacrificing three years of your life and incurring a large amount of debt, you're making it harder to start a career in any other field. Employers are going to wonder 1) if you're going to leave their business to become a lawyer since that's what you really want to do and 2) if you wanted to be a lawyer enough to go to law school, why did you fail at that? What does that say about you as a potential employee?
And do not dismiss people when they tell you not to base your decision on the assumption that you'll be one of the lucky ones who graduates from St. John's with a job that allows you to pay off your debts. Everyone who enrolls there assumes this. Most of them will be wrong. I don't care how many people told you that you're good at arguing, you are not a special snowflake.
To answer your question of what you should do, retake the LSAT and get a high enough score to get into a law school that gives you at least a reasonable chance at becoming a lawyer.
