Entry-level biglaw hiring happens after your 1L summer, not after graduation and bar passage.
Many a paralegal has gone to law school expecting a job to be waiting at their former firm. Many a paralegal has been disappointed. So have many not too distant relatives of biglaw partners.
Networking your way into a biglaw job is almost impossible without the requisite school and grades. Counting on it as a reason to go to law school is foolish.
