I get your point. The truth of the matter is SYN and maybe even you will have a lucrative position upon graduation. You may be in the position to show up, do your job, and go on vaction half the year. However, the majority of graduates will not be in that position. Just as SYN states that my position does not represent most students, your position and his does not. There are so many seats in the selected schools that are selective recruited from. That leaves a lot more people pounding the pavement or settling for less than what they may have been lead to believe. What I am trying to advance is for most people if their motivation is nothing more than money, what will drive them after graduation when the job does not materialize, or they settle for 50k a year? It may be safe for you to openly go to law school strictly for monetary reasons. I just would advise anyone to go for these reasons. As for being a face in corporate, that may be the attitude that is prevalent in field of law. That does not hold true for all facets of lawyering. Also may be I am too idealistic. I mistakenly thought that most people held this view for going to law school.
