My only point here is that if you're not going to be happy unless you have 12 degrees and are a federal judge who litigates whale-personhood cases on the side, and conversely won't be happy pushing paper for corporate overlords for 60 hours a week, then you probably shouldn't become a lawyer and hence go to law school. Unless you're super duper confident that you're the special snowflake unicorn that everyone has always told you that you are, in which case you'll totally carve that niche, dude!
First, there is an absolutely cavernous middle ground you're overlooking. Second, im not sure why you think that you shouldn't go to law school unless you want to be a 60hpw paper pusher.
