I'm not. I just want to go to law school. My motto is you can always make something out of nothing with a little hard work and dedication. I don't really pay attention to rankings all that much. If I get into a T-14 great if not its not like my life is going to be over. Plus I also believe a person can transfer after 1L year as long as they remain focus and work hard. I don't pay attention to others negativity about where I may decide to go.
+1. I used to be T14 or bust but debt terrifies me. I wouldn't want to have to rely on biglaw to pay off my loans. And having worked at a biglaw firm as a staff member, I could tell some of those guys were not happy at all. There was even an associate that started about the same time as me and left in less than two years. They even closed access to a patio cause an attorney jumped off ten years or so back.
I've always been attracted to biglaw for the training and credentials it provides. But doing that for 40+ years? Idk. There's more to life than billable hours, client meetings, and missing family events cause your supervising partner wants something drafted yesterday
And sticker anywhere outside of HYSCCN? Not a chance. Have y'all seen people contemplating suicide in the vale?
Hopefully I can find a school that offers a balance of employment prospects and scholarship money!
