Absolutely take the IB job. Lawyers are prestige oriented egos hounds, and taking a job as a paralegal could actually hurt you. Lawyers would probably look at an IB analyst as more of an equal than they would a paralegal. Also, the analyst job probably has better long term prospects if you ultimately decide against law school.

Most associate jobs are 5-6 year stints.

Very few make it to Partner.
Even fewer make it to Revenue Sharing Partner.

So where do people go after their associate stints?

Better question:

Paralegal or jack booth janitor? At least one provides you with decent PS, ahem, material.
