I don't understand why anyone would ever want to be a lawyer, you start on like $150k after law school, you work investment banking hours, work sounds even more boring like on m&a your back office spelling checking shit, what are your exit opps another firm? Progression of pay isn't very quick and unless you make partner, which happens when your legit old you'll never have have real cash money.
Talked to my uncle about this and he said he didn't know finance even existed when he was going through uni.
I have similar opinions on google after hearing a quant analyst only makes $160k and the highest paying non partner guy was on like $330k.
