Big, no I did not get into a super law school yet - I was only able to get into T30 only with a 25% schollie, which is why I am seriously debating whether going to law school is worth it at all for me this year. I still have a shot at T10 and working on that... No matter how many cases you win - and workign for any self respecting law firm you will not be allowed in court room for the first 5-10 years with the firm - you will always be a T6, T10, T14, TT, TTT, TTTT or TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT for a wide range of opportunities, including academia, prestigious judgeships and federal jobs.
If you strive to be a lawyer, knock yourself out and go to your TTTTTTTTTT, I am sure you will learn a lot and maybe even be an awesome lawyer. However, similar to how it worked in middle ages, where no matter how able a peasant or a merchant were they would never be nobility, you will have a glass ceiling to many exciting opportunities.
