The issue with OP is that he cant get a TC at all. I don't think he's getting an offer to a big 4 anytime soon. Not being mean, just an observation.

If so, and he wants to stay in the industry, it may not be a bad idea to spend a few years as a paralegal.... but he needs to know that chances of being converted are very low... and those years are years he can't get back. He needs to face the fact that it is a gamble (with odds not in his favour), and it may be that he never gets an associate role... ever.

But if law is his life/passion/if not in this industry will die kind, then why not?
