If you really want to be a lawyer go to law school. It helps if you know where you want to work. For instance, Boston is a market that likes Boston students. A student at ANY Boston school has a shot. It is true that the "worse" the school the higher you need to be in the class. Also, think about what you want to do. Some of the lower ranked schools are very good places for people who want to go into government or politics. Suffolk in Boston is a good example of this.
There are a lot of factors. The most important thing is to go to law school because you want to be a lawyer. It's not really something to do for shits and giggles or even because some lawyers make a lot of money. If you aren't sure, take some time and work.
