Since there's nothing I can do about the past, I've been mass-mailing and emailing every firm I bid but did not interview with. So far, nothing.
I called my family and told them that I was going to drop out because the idea of six-figure debt and unemployment (or shitlaw) is horrifying. They have offered to pay for my legal education out of my inheritance, but throwing good money after bad is foolish. Anyways, they reacted poorly, calling me childish for even considering quitting and telling me that the Internet (i.e. JD Underground, TLS, etc.) has led me to foolish belief that biglaw is likely forever out of reach. My family is filled with doctors and nurses, no lawyers, so they don't understand the legal industry, the hiring process, or the fact that I'm on a path to shitlaw. My repeated attempts to explain how things work led to phone calls and emails from various family members, all of which derided me for considering dropping out. Long story short, it looks like I'm sticking with law school and I guess I'm going to have to gun for a clerkship.

OP do you want law? I don't know what to tell you. You are a little all over the place: going to one market for school because of a scholarship, transferring to another school ( I'm assuming without scholarship ), then you don't bid well ( did you get advice?) and now you want to drop out.
Poor bidding and over confident bidding has hurt people before, you aren't alone in making that mistake.
I don't understand you, your thought process or your decisions.
What do you really want here? Do you have specific practice areas you want?
