I know that is seems to be a crazy question, but its a huge leap of faith to chase your dream. I am excited about it, but I want to make sure that I am not jumping too blindly into the fray. Ideally, I'd like to do big law. Not for the money, but because I think that I would actually enjoy the pace and the type of environment that it holds.
This certainly helps ease my thoughts as I finish up and head down the path.
Now I am just waiting to start my LSAT test prep.
Thanks again all.
Generally, everyone targets this caliber of school... the T14. Not to be too much of a cynic but is there really anyone who aims for Big Law where the money isn't in the top 3 motivating factors? Otherwise, there are plenty of low paying extremely hard legal jobs out there. You may, of course, have intimate knowledge of Big Law compared to medium sized firms, government positions, and public interest and opted for the former due to your understanding of the subtle nuances that make Big Law more suited for you.... Or, as is usually the case, you heard it pays a shit load and provides hard work and have decided that's for you.
