I'm in a pretty dark place right now. Hope everyone is doing better.

Currently waiting on CA Bar results and with a lot of debt + no real ambitions to work in biglaw/private sector I'm planning to can take the Public Interest Forgiveness + IBR route. My plan is to get a job in public interest/any registered nonprofit/government (if I can be lucky enough to find such a job) so I can get in those 10 yrs worth of repayments, regardless of if I am licensed or not. Would be nice to pass the bar, though, and actually practice and go that route. If I don't pass, I'm not going to sweat it and try to get a job anyway.
Anyone with a similar story? Feedback?
Dat real life horror story of debt and unemployment doe.
My boss has a job you can have just for sending in a resume. We hired people from T4 law schools who didn't have a minute of relevant work experience because we had 1 spot to fill and 1 resume. $50k, benefits, 40 hour weeks, I have done 8 trials within a month of being sworn in. It's in Carlsbad, NM, which isn't a destination town, but unemployment can end if you're willing to move. In fact, I know of at least 5 rural DA jobs in New Mexico.
