Those Darn Kids

My 14th & You and I enjoyed a late lunch at Teaism today. Yummers. Even better than the lunch was the entertaining conversation between three young 20-somethings seated next to us, one of whom was contemplating taking the LSAT and applying to law school. 

Their chatter was very enlightening. Did you know, for example, that 26 really isn't so old to go to law school and that, furthermore, some people in their 30's make $60k or less a year? As it turns out, Ms. Future Attorney had an acquaintance sitting at the next table. Her table of three and his table of three then started chatting, which was when one gentleman proclaimed that he scored a 175 (out of 180) on the LSAT without even studying. When asked why he didn't then go on to enroll in law school, he said that he "wanted to do something more intellectually challenging." 

I love DC, I really really do. But could these young 'uns head off to grad school somewhere else? Quickly.
