Go to law school if you want to be a lawyer.
Any other aspiration isn't worth the time wasted, the debt, and the embarrassment.
Dirigo, you seem like a real cool person but can you just "stop acting like a 0L knw it all". We have heard the same thing on TLS 1000+ times we get it! It's still not going to change other people's opinion.
People with Law degrees go on to become CEOs/investment bankers/journalist etc. No one knows where the hell they are going to be in 10+yrs. As much as I want to be a lawyer right now that does not mean that I'm not going to not want to be a lawyer in 5+ yrs.
People burn out, they get tired of law or some other random unpredictable shit, having a law degree and opting out of law should not be considered an embarrassment without factoring in other considerations.
Forgive my rant people but 0L telling other 0L about the law annoys me. Can we just like focus on the LSAT and other LSAT related shit ITT (weight gain, stress and other random fun shit) and leave the "I know more about law and law school than you" for the other threads.
