Do the bare minimum to get a law degree. In the next two years, find a local solo attorney who will let you intern/shadow them for free. Learn skills like how to collect debts from clients, how to handle small claims, etc. Nobody is going to hire you, so use these two years to learn how to actually be an attorney, because you're going to need to open up your own shop after you graduate and law school will teach you nothing about doing that. Make contacts in the local solo bar and, when you graduate, find someone who will rent you office space in exchange for handling a few matters and will refer you cases that are too small to be worth their time.

Forget the word biglaw exists. You will never see the inside of a biglaw office unless you're sweeping the floors or delivering the coffee.
