heres a list of the "best" 50 jobs, http://money.cnn.com/magazines/moneymag/bestjobs/top50/index.html
interesting to say the least, and a college professor is number 2, maybe i'll move to rural america and work at a juco, that would be the life, except for living in rural america

maybe i'm just overly influenced by the media, but i'm surprised software engineer/it analyst is still up there -- i would've assumed outsourcing would have an effect on those?

What lawyer?

A biglaw man working 80 hours a week for 100k+?
A independent practice lawyer with his own hours but only 50ishk?
A medium firm man with negotiable hours and negotiable salary?

Lawyer encompasses a massive field of people, from top school graduates in judicial clerkships, to tier 4 grads just opening up their own independent practices, and everything inbetween. I think the quality of your career depends heavily on what lawyer you're talking about. Shoot, I think even the same school grads would have very different lives in government versus bigfirm, etc.

I really don't think you can accurately group lawyers (or most other jobs) like that list did. Either way, top 50 ain't shabby.

Look out, the nurses are bearing down on us!  I knew I should have been a real estate appraiser.
