Why didn't you pick medical school if you want to make good money?

Postby chicagoburger » Wed Feb 01, 2017 5:24 pm

For law students, you have to attend the top schools and become top students to have a shot at a job that has an upper bound of $160k.


On the contrary, medical schools pretty much guarantee a great paying job after residency regardless of their ranking.
And being a doctor has a lower bound of $160k in general.

Why not medical school?

What's the catch? Please help me.


Thanks.

Maybe people here do not want to be doctors... and are actually interested in studying/practicing law

Yeah, I've had an interest in law my whole life and I have literally zero interest in medicine.

Most law students would have had no chance of getting into and succeeding in med school.

Same reason you aren't bothering people on top-med-schools.com: don't want to go to school for that long, don't want to be a doctor, and don't have anywhere near the prereqs to get into med school. You can't just fuck around and take a bunch of creative writing classes in UG, study for the mcat over the summer, then go to med school.

Your premise, and your facts, are flawed. Do some research and try again

I was under the impression that doctors had to deal with people all the time, while lawyers sat in offices and never had to talk to anyone or deal with people.

Well that fucking backfired.

If you want to make a serious topic about medical school vs law school, that's fine. But raging/trolling because you are upset that the forum told you to retake and told you your plan was dumb is not okay.

Also, haven't you heard? It's 180k now.
