But there is a part two to this discussion that I have brought up in other threads. That is that you may very well land the 145k job (and maybe in 3 years it will be at 165k, who knows) but what if you absolutely hate it? You will be chained to your desk for 3-4 years even if you are highly disciplined, if you want to pay off your loans and do something more fulfilling that maybe pays less.
I think all of us should probably consider an MCAT prep course during law school. This will give us a head start in case that firm job doesn't materialize by the end of 3L.
