Many of the posters are not current applicants, but butthurt 2L/3Ls who had a bad law school experience and are doing everybody the (non-)favor of scaring them away from attending because the economy is terrible and because some dude with a blog claiming to be a Biglaw attorney told them not to attend and rabble rabble rabble.

and there's no reason to become a patent attorney either

I'm not sure what your cynicism is based on. Patent law is intellectually stimulating, you get to see new products before they're introduced to the public, it pays well enough, and it's a niche specialty not open to everyone (making the patent attorney a true specialist).

If you're going to say something like that about patent law, then you might as well throw in every other specialty.

I'll also add (in response to a different post) that there is absolutely no substitute for actual experience working in a hospital, treating patients, administering drugs, dealing with insurance, etc. Yes, of course many attorneys enter medical malpractice with zero medical experience. However, if you haven't seen inside the sausage factory by being a physician or other health care professional, then you don't have a full appreciation of how the industry functions. Nurses, PAs, DOs, and pharmacists could also make outstanding health care attorneys.
