Three finals down, one to go. Right now, though, I’m thinking maybe the is the route I should take:

This year has been particularly rough, especially considering my early exit from the Moot Court Competition and career-low statistics in both Secured Transactions and Business Associations II.  That being said, I’d like to announce my eligibility for the 2010 NBA Draft this June.

After talking extensively with my family, NBA Scouts, and Dean Agrawal, I feel the time is right for me to take my game to the next level.  We went through a lot of the same process last summer, but then again, at that time I had a paid internship and a credit score above 600.  Given the current economic climate, looming unemployment rates in large legal markets and another potentially devastating subprime real estate ripple approaching, this is the right decision for me financially as well.  The daily per diem and impending shoe contract have simply become too alluring in light of rising out-of-state tuition and an increased Consumer Price Index relative to average national legal wages.  With little or no hope for an externship and a 0% success rate with OCI, the NBA draft is my next best alternative.
