If you can't figure out how to get a job with your BA, why are you going to go straight into a professional school that will make it far harder to get a job? Even in this economy, it's easier to get an entry level job with a 3.8 in a useless liberal arts major than it will be to get a JD required job that will service your massive loans. Go do corporate recruiting this fall and go to a consulting firm. Get a job as a paralegal. Try marketing, advertising, publishing. Go write grants for a nonprofit. The possibilities for bland white collar work are endless even without a JD.
What is 'corporate recruting' and how do I 'do' it? I am interested in this possibility.
I haven't read the whole thread, but if you're in NYC, simply google "staffing agency nyc". You might temp for a bit until a company finds a good place for you, but it's a service paid for by corporations and businesses looking to hire people. As long as you are computer competant, your GPA will qualify you for loads of good jobs. It's how I ended up as a biglaw paralegal and started getting interested in law.
