Monthly reminder: If you go to law school, you better be damn sure you want to practice law. And if you graduate law school, you better be damn ready to accept the fact that going solo right off the bat is a very real option. You'll be better off for it. Otherwise, without connections, no one will hire you for non-legal work.
All of you 0Ls waffling on *&^% like "Should I take $15k at a T1 or a full ride at a T2?" should really be considering "Am I going to really want to practice law, especially by myself as a solo without any practical instruction*? Am I going to have what it takes to deal with clients face to face on a daily basis?" It's really a matter of accepting your own ignorance and having the confidence to confront it. These threads have covered the money issues time and time again; it's all there and you can figure that out on your own, so just make up your mind and do what you want. If you have to ask, you probably shouldn't go since the money issue is easy enough to figure out on a personal level.
But harder still is accepting the likely fact that you'll have to either a) actually practice law and handle clients alone without any real, direct guidance, or b) come up with a way to explain a three-year gap in your resume that satisfies the curiosity of corporate recruiters elsewhere.
* Law school will never prepare you for actual practice, I don't care how many clinics you do.
