In re: the money question, my plan is to get a job at the DOJ or as a prosecutor for 60k per year. Not terrible income, but I could certainly do better in another field. Why do I want to do that? Because the practice of law itself appeals to me in a way that other jobs simply do not, and I want the better living conditions of a government job vs. a firm job.
That's impressive and I would accept the kind of criticism and preachiness that's on tap here from someone like you - i.e., someone who doesn't care about the money. You're a pretty rare bird, however. I would also guess that many of the birds of your feather will change their minds when the reality of paying off $100k+ in loans on a $60k salary hits home.
