I mean, anyone who gets a score that high could bust their ass (or not, in some cases) and do the same on the GRE and GMAT, so are they supposed to get 15 degrees just because they can?

This is usually the line I use with my students. I got a 180 on the LSAT, but I also got a 770 on the GMAT, and I'm not likely to go to business school. When they object, "But you'd be so good at it!" (for law school), I say, "Why? Because I can tell you which birds are in the forest according to the following conditions? Really?"

It's true, but you would be good at getting in to law school.

This is very much true; I cannot recall the source, but I read awhile back that most JDs do not pursue careers directly involved with the legal field. Go figure.
