I have a mathematics major and computer science minor (from a top ten computer science school). I'm interested in patent/contract/or tax law because I enjoy writing in explicit and bug free detail. I also enjoy problem solving.
Hopefully those areas are more about problem solving, than doing paperwork otherwise law isn't for me.
"What about somebody who got a humanities degree and no longer has the option of doing any of that stuff? " Really? You can't do dental hygiene or earn some Microsoft certificates to become an IT person? I'm shocked to learn that someone who can become an attorney, cannot gain entrance into any of those fields. The debt incurred wouldn't be that much. Becoming a pharmer would require significantly more debt, but even that is not impossible.
Anyways at least one mathematics major is going into law. I took two English courses at my university, and not a single political science course.
The competition for mathematics and computer science is pretty tough, and the work can be gruelling; the grass on the other side of the fence isn't as green as you may think.
