I already have a job, thanks.
Whether things work out for you or whether they don't, you will go through law school humbled--whether its yourself or your friends. Even at the most elite schools in this nation, you will see at least some of your friends--and quite possibly yourself--have their futures completely devastated by a random, unjust, and invalid process that imparts upon people nothing but an empty notion of prestige.
And once you're done worrying about grades, you'll worry about getting no-offered, and then you'll worry about getting pushed out of your firm before you can pay off any debt through Biglaw's "up or out" strategy.
Or you can just go the low debt route and choose where you actually want to practice law--some place stable, some place that isn't defending large investment banks that crashed our economy, etc.
