Did you just receive a high LSAT score?

Go ahead and try to get into one of the very best law schools, to begin in Fall 2012. Don't worry about the official deadlines. There's some bizarre desperation out there, apparently, so act now. It's a buyer's market.

If all the high-LSAT folks spring for open positions now, what will happen in the new round of applications next winter? A lower LSAT score will go further, presumably. Or will the schools wait to pounce on the best June 2013 scores?

If you're at a safe distance, enjoy the theater of the popping law school bubble.

If someone has a passion for English and an aptitude for logic, what other occupation could a person pursue that would be as suitable as practicing law?

There are way too many of the damn things.

Scott, based on the lawyers I've known, some good alternative professions that would take advantage of their skills might include:

Snake-handling evangelist
Used car salesman
Pimp
Grifter
C*ck-sucking street whore

Can you tell that I don't care much for lawyers? Is my schadenfreude showing?

Or, you know, you can go into a profession that actually makes people's lives better off, rather than become yet another parasitic lawyer.

Scott,

Software requirements analyst. Communication skills plus logic equals huge opportunities.

Grifter has been working for me.

Your question seems to assume that law will be a pleasant occupation for this innocent victim. He may, in fact, find it quite painful!

Investment banking. Many of my most successful colleagues studied English prior to entering business. The liberal arts as they were once taught are fantastic for business.

AA: I wrote "suitable" not "enjoyable". Lots of people enjoy things that they have no business doing. (You should hear me play piano!)

When did the notion that we had to enjoy our work creep into the culture? Maybe if more people believed that work wasn't meant to be enjoyable, they would be happier.

Then again, maybe not. I am completely qualified for my work, but I'm getting burned out.

Some days I feel like sitting on the side of the West Side Highway all day doing nothing but watching the cars go by...

@Michael: I know an investment banker. He has excellent English skills, but he's also analytical, extremely skeptical, and can read a balance sheet.
