OP is not top of his class. He couldn't get into honors programs with presumably not good grades.
OP, I know you said you're not interested in this, but if you reaaaally want biglaw and want to be positive about it, clerkship is in fact the way to go. You might not be competitive for a clerkship now, but after a year at a firm, you might be. Once you score the clerkship, that will open more opportunities for you. So there is hope. Sorry I wasn't more positive before.
like what, a state trial clerkship or something? in what universe is a clerkship easier to get than a biglaw job?
