Law students represent a tiny, tiny sliver of society. Take top law grads along with other advanced degree holders working in intellectual professions (scientists, doctors, professorial types, etc.) and you're lucky if you've assembled 1% of the population. Hell, take all lawyers combined with the rest of those categories and you'd be hard pressed to reach 1%.
Remember that only a quarter of people in this country get a four year degree.
Maybe I'm bitter because I spent many years being surrounded by utterly moronic, incompetent, and borderline-dangerous idiots. Law school is like a fun little walled-off haven. The world is mostly a busy, noisy, and stupid place. Don't be afraid to admit it to yourself: you are mind-bogglingly smarter than the average person. (Just don't get a bid head about it!)
