Getting pressure? From whom? Parents?
Law school is not a place to "park" simply to quell parents or anyone else. If they want to foot the bill, fine and dandy. Otherwise, think long and hard about whether the law is what you want to pursue. A JD has extremely limited application outside the actual practice of law. If you simply want to go to grad school and are not certain about law, an MBA would be quicker and cheaper.
As others here will tell you (especially the attorneys), be VERY sure you want to pursue the law. There are very few "Big Law" jobs out there, and many quite intelligent law school grads are scrambling to get "any" job.
The only reason (as others have said before) is if you feel determined to practice law. I am in that boat, but still am approaching law school with a modicum of caution.
