Quote from: REALITY on August 22, 2010, 09:08:20 AMIn the end, who cares WHY it works out that way, as long as it does?First off, let me point out that you didn't address my point on the anecdotal nature of the evidence.With regard to the WHY, if there's an independent reason that's causing the correlation but you don't take that into account, then there's a good chance that things will no longer continue to work out that way.Say, for example, that the people you know who are lawyers happen to be the people you know who are smart and motivated. They would probably have made more money regardless of whether or not they became lawyers. If, however, you say that the important thing is that they are lawyers and not that they are smart and motivated, and this leads people who are not smart or motivated to go to law school, then your observation that lawyers make more money will no longer hold true, at least not to the same degree.
In the end, who cares WHY it works out that way, as long as it does?
No shitthats why I started it off with "who cares"
No!!! All it takes is to coast through college and get some multiple choice questions on a test about nothing. Then you get admitted into a law school and all your worries drift away. You become almost superhuman, you can't count the money in your bank account, and you become extremely motivated once you start. Don't you know that law school solves everyone's problems.
