Lots of thoughtful advice pissed away. No. The thread is over a year old, and it was revived only by OP saying he dropped out per the funny flow chart. Not sure why a bunch of people started posting...
Permit me to throw out a very general question. There seems to be a prevailing belief in the legal community that if you don't attend a T14 school, you're not going to get a very good job. If this is true, where do all the non-T14 grads work? There are far more of them than T14 grads. Are they all struggling in dead-end, low-paying legal jobs? If this were the case, how could so many law schools continue to survive? New law schools are built ever few years? Did the legal fairy magically suspend the laws of supply and demand just for the legal market? Finally, if prosecutor and AUSA jobs are so competitive, how come when I research their bios only a small percentage attended top schools? We have US Attorneys who attended such illustrious schools as the University of Mississippi, the University of Arkansas, and the University of Oklahoma... none are T14 by a long shot.
Go back and read my post on the ABA. The ABA and the sector of the legal profession that makes the decision to churn out more and more law grads doesn't follow logic or the rules of supply and demand that you learned in college.
Law schools also capitalize off a persistent, false belief held by the general public that most, or many law grads are successful or very successful. This belief has become very cemented over time and as long as naive pre-laws buy it (along with dubious career placement stats in glossy l.s. brochures) they are going to fork over the high tuition (and take out student loans) in order to go to law school.
And yes. He said he did poorly and dropped out. Someone suggested, if he was originally interested in the military itself rather than JAG, OCS. I second that. They'll help pay off his debt and get a Masters, which is the real first step toward his goal of teaching at the collegiate level.

Getting a military commission is MUCH more difficult than getting accepted to law school. It is very competitive. Nothing in OP's background would indicate he'd have any chance at this at all.I have to laugh at idiots who think becoming a military officer is a viable fallback after failing in the "real" world.
