Bit of a hypothetical one here, but albeit a much more realistic hypothetical than the ones thrown around here. I am currently on board to work at, which I am 100% gung-ho for, but I'm wondering about the longer-term job security within the industry, regulations, etc... I've been beginning to give law school more weight in my mind, and I'm fairly confident that I have as good a chance as anyone at Harvard Law school straight out of undergrad. I have above a 4.0 because law schools count A+'s as a 4.3, I go to a top 3 public uni, and have great extra curriculars etc.... and I scored a 174 on the LSAT, so those demographics put me in the upper echelon for even Harvard applicants.
So my question, which would be the better long term choice(career opportunities and compensation, I know my lifestyle will suck in either path til 30+), continuing at GS or doing a little wild card move and going to HLS (assuming I get in)?
