There are firms at the bottom of the Vault rankings that would probably look at OP if his next semester is good, if he has stellar work experience, extra-curriculars, etc. It's definitely true that someone who's median or below at a top 10 school is in a better situation (I take this for granted), but his situation is not hopeless. He didn't earn all Cs, Ds, and Fs, people. He got B minuses.
Again, this OP wouldn't even really have a shot at biglaw if he/she got all A+s next semester and was a little above median after one semester. OP is at a T40.
Does that mean drop out? I dunno. I won't drop out just because there is no shot at biglaw, but there are lots of variables at play. If OP is looking at a lot of debt and is uncomfortable with being a lawyer for very low pay, then OP should get out now before they incur more debt. If OP is okay with being in a lot of debt or has a full ride, and is fine with working a really low paying job to start out (which is almost a guarantee at this point) and just REALLY wants to be a lawyer, then they should stick with it. It is a very personal call.
Again, I won't advocate dropping out without knowing more about the OP's situation. But your insistence that there are Vault firms who would look at OP after this semester is just laughably out of touch with reality.
