It all started with a 180 on his LSAT

A serious motivational factor for many aspiring lawyers is the potential income that top attorneys earn. A recent New York Times article strives to deconstruct “the one percent”, and the folks at the Above The Law blog have pulled out the data from the article relevant to lawyers.

There are some truly compelling statistics in this article, and a very interesting interactive breakdown of earnings by career.

How many of you are going to law school with the hopes of joining the 1%?
