I agree with Yiplong that not using your JD after you've spent so much effort and money to get it is a horrible scenario. I recently found out that a woman I work with graduated from UPenn law 6 years ago. I work for a Fortune 10 insurance company in the accounting dept. and a trained monkey in business casual could do our job...
Wow. I did a quick check, and UPenn is ranked #7 by US News!
So I'll go out on a limb and guess that there's something else going on in this woman's life that would cause her to settle for a job like that. (??)
