The first thing that I would like to highlight is that if you are not excited about the prospect of being a lawyer or attending law school, you should really evaluate this -- as investing all this time, energy and money into such an endeavor is unwise.
Next, I so believe that you would be a competitive candidate at some of the business schools that have linkages with HKS. As you know, HKS has partnered with only the most select group of MBA programs, basically those with the lowest acceptance rates. This means that admissions to any of these is not guaranteed by any means. However, you have many strong aspects to your candidacy that, if properly presented, can make you a compelling and competitive candidate. Just based on your grades and scores, almost all of these schools will take you very seriously. As for your career, you need to stop downplaying it and start thinking of it as a unique experience which will add a different perspective to whatever business school you apply to. Simply put, if you have a negative opinion of what you have done, this will come through in some aspect of your application.
I would also want you to open your mind up to a few other joint degree programs that I believe will provide you with the knowledge and experience to make this career transition you desire. These include the SAIS - Wharton program as well as the joint MBA- SIA program at Columbia.
