I have pretty good social skills (have been promoted at a number of jobs, because of success with clients), but am not very great at interviews in an uncontrollable way. My education pre-law school isn't that great, and I was a splitter. I am very much a working class guy with a high IQ who does well on tests, but can't get the "talking the talk" down. I could prob make 100k dropping out (don't want to out myself) after a few years being self employed. I really want big law, but can't get an offer for the life of me. Drop out?
If you want biglaw, but they won't hire you due to your inability to interview, then why stay?
I'm taking you at your word that no one will hire you, because I have no way to know if that is true or how hard you have been searching, mass mailing, etc.
But 3L hiring is almost non-existant and if you don't have a biglaw SA your chances are slimmer.
What are your odds of clerking and then getting biglaw? Your grades seem good enough. Do you have any professors willing to make calls for you if you are such a bad interviewer?
