    Yeah, I've heard that too. A lot of people want to do it (although not everyone can get the 99+ to actually get in straight away), and a lot of people do end up doing it, but heaps end up dropping because it is rather rigorous. My cousin made it to Masters, she told me that by the time she got to where she is (a Masters degree in Law), there were only two people in the class. All the others (there were a lot) ended up dropping along the way.

    If you're not passionate about it obviously you shouldn't do it or you will either most likely not do well or not do well on the job (which is important for lawyers).

    It is prestigous but that doesn't matter and every job has oversupply usually you just need to stand out. Standing out is easier if you have a passion for it.

    If you do law, you're an absolute shit cunt... unless it's environmental law.

    I think it's bc of the skills of the degree that are particularly useful and not the degree itself

    Not really because of the skills, it's more the fact that you were good enough to get into law in the first place so banks use that as a sense check. Comm/law also tends to be quite clique-y.
