So, I'm sitting here trying to strategize about possible career paths and was curious what others, in similar situations, might be thinking.
Right now my plan is most likely to try and take a Big Law job straight out of law school, and slave away for a few years to pay off what I expect to be monstrous debt and perhaps establish some sort of financial nest-egg. After that, I'd like to transition into a public intersest work of some sort (or political/governmental perhaps.)
Ultimately, public interest work of some sort is where my passion is and what I want to do with my career, but I'm a bit hesitant about taking a detour through Big Law to get there. Anyone else thinking about trying this sort of path? I guess the other options for PI work are: (1) Go to the school which will offer the least amount of debt or (2) Try and make the most of the school's LRAP. Any thoughts?
