The answer is a resounding "No."
If you can't go to a good law school (some would define it differently, but I'd say at least Tier 1 if not t14), then don't waste the time or the money unless you really, really want to be able to tell people that you're a lawyer. Otherwise, you'll take on a lot of debt and not have any way to pay it back.
Just wait a few years and then go to law school fulltime if you can get your LSAT score up.
It depends. If the firm only sends one team of recruiters and they stay for one day, they will do 20 or so interviews. Multiply that by the number of days and the number of teams. Some firms interview upwards of 100. Most big firms at my school do 40 to 60.
I am thinking I could get Big Law in Denver if I land top 25%(top 20 students) (Holland and Hart) or top 40% with an LLM.
BIGLAW=make market in a national firm. So Jones Day in Cleveland ($135k) is BIGLAW, but something in Kansas City that pays $95k isn't.
I don't think an LLM will help you make BIGLAW.
I've never heard of any vault firm hiring from their support staff. This isn't Boston Legal. If you have the grades to work there, you'll get a job. If you don't, slapping labels on binders isn't going to make a difference.
