hey Pit,

quick question.

my sister, who is 21, is very seriously considering going into law school, but NOT being a lawyer. now, she graduated near the top of her class from UIUC with a classics BA, and she's fairly good at all the stereotypically lawyer-ey things (arguing and whatnot). unfortunately, she claims to despise lawyers and most of the things you could primarily do with a JD, despite the fact that everybody tells her she could (and most likely would) do well in law school. she'd also probably do very well getting into an upper-tier, if not top-tier law program, her LSAT score is 170, or something around there.

so anyways, considering that she almost categorically hates lawyers and politics, etc, but that she'd probably do very well in law school, my question is this:

what can you do with a J.D.?

thanks

Vagina's tend to be not all that great looking most of the time. It's all... flappy. Looks sloppy.

I'd have to say guy junk wins but not by much. It's like winning a beauty contest against Steve Buscemi.

She could be a:

Judge
Cop
Bartender

If she graduated top of her class, then she could probably do whatever the hell she wants at this point. So whatever she picks, she will probably be great at it.

Judges almost always start as attorneys.


EDIT: ^ A JD is a juris doctorate (a law degree, basically)

If she doesn't want to be a lawyer and hates all things related she shouldn't waste her time and money to go to law school. It's ridiculously expensive and very time consuming.

What's a classics BA? She should get her master's degree in whatever that is, then get a job.

Aww YEah! I just do what I do when I do what I do!

Fantastic show!

But seriously, JD's are good for corporate world management positions. However, it usually goes with well with a more technical bachelors degree. I'm considering it too.

this is just my two cents but if your sister really hates lawyers and politics then maybe she should become a lawyer. I think we all know how messed up the whole legal system is and how many scumbag lawyers are ruining peoples lives. But if all the good people who hate the system in place avoid it then that only leaves those who like it the way it is. Namely the profit-hungry greedsters who care more about lining their own pockets than in helping their countrymen be well represented legally. So if she hates lawyers and politicians then I say she should become one of them. We need people like her that want to reform the system so that it will serve the people and not the other way around.
