Who resurrected this thread? Like someone said earlier, I'll bet these stereotypes are being reinforced by self-selection. Just for kicks, let me illustrate with an example. I know maybe two dozen lawyers, including my wife. Every lawyer I know graduated from a top-10 law school and works at a Vault 50 firm or Fortune 50 corp (which is just to say my sample isn't lacking in talent or ambition).

Now, thanks to what everyone's written, I've finally assembled my wedding outfit. Here's your chance to critique it.
