Not sure if you have considered the time you invest in your medical degrees.

4 years in medical school + 4 years of residency (during which you're paid ~$30k a year) and maybe another two years of fellowship ($50k - $60k).

And, finally, after 10 years after college, you becomes an attending physician and start earning the so-called doctor's salary.

A person who starts law school at the same time you start medical school will be a 7th-year associate, or even a partner already.

I don't know if it's already been pointed out, and I don't care to look, but it's Johns Hopkins, not John Hopkins. So yeah...

Interesting how upset some people get when someone tries to constructively share some words from experience, however anecdotal it may be.

Even without the misspelling, he should've stayed down-to-earth with his MS claim: a nice SUNY or UWV would've made the point just fine.

Let's face it, you made a lousy flame and you failed at it. Step back, take a few breaths, consider what you did wrong, and try again later. No point getting mad.

Speaking as a Johns Hopkins degree holder, I can say with certainty that a Johns Hopkins student would know how to spell Johns Hopkins.

I could understand your guys' criticism if I came in here to simply say "DOCTORS RULE LAWYERS DROOL :p " but that is obviously not that case. I am here saying that you guys are all very smart people and deserve better than the lousy career prospects that pursuing law gives you. I don't understand the backlash at all to be quite honest.

Don't get me wrong, you're clearly committed to the flame, which I admire. But you need to recognize failure and cut your losses.

Thanks, good luck making 55,000 per year doing document review, leasing a Honda Accord, making rent pay check to pay check while I am making millions of dollars performing surgeries that save peoples lives. I would be mad if I were you also.

I came in here hoping to be a voice for some mature, open-minded intellectuals, but instead I feel like I am in a high school chat room. Its no surprise the legal profession is so oversaturated when kids like some of you can just be given a Juris Doctor.

It is certainly not in my nature(especially behind a computer screen) and my initial intentions at all. I wanted to share an experience to be a voice of reason for who I thought would be a great of extremely intelligent young men and women. Instead I received this negative backlash.
