dumb question: is orange county, CA considered a secondary market? i'd want to go back home [where i grew up, not college] to work there, and also figure that it'd be easy to demonstrate ties there.
random question: i want to do academia/public interest, but i'm thinking it might be smart to work BigLaw for a year after graduating just so i can make enough $$ to repay the loans. do many people do this? i'm thinking maybe work BigLaw for a year, go back and clerk, then go back and do stuff i love. does this even make sense? i am a stupid undergraduate who knows nothing; enlightenment needed.
