Not to derail this thread again, but I completely agree with you. This crowd frustrates me so much; the "I just graduated with a seemingly useless English (or History, Philosophy, Gender Studies, etc) degree and (surprisingly) can't find a job that isn't complete low level bull. Well, maybe I should go to law school, I don't need to know anything in particular and I don't need math. I guess my 3.8 in (insert silly field) will help."

And yes, all jobs are shitty. But some are less shitty and I (as do most people on TLS) find that law is a little less shitty than a lot of the rest.

Yup. I work in retail, at a pretty damn good place nevertheless, and it blows. Don't like it. Money, until we are talking about a LOT, won't change that.
