I'll probably come back to my T6 and get a PhD in Econ after I spend a few years in big-law to pay down these loan.

If you can make it all 4 years, your chances of getting a residency are very high I think most good carib schools match 90%. Unlike law, they actually put the match list online and it states specifically which hospital and who is going where.

You have to consider that it is another 4 years of your life and another 200k worth of debt. + another 4 years before you can make your 150k+ salary.


I just wanted to say...

Match rates from the good schools (the big 4 of the carib) are around 85% and going down as, unfortunately, mainland schools have increased seats- but there has been no corresponding increases in residency slots.

Match rates from the non big schools, however, are in the 40-60% range, which is even worse than going to law school in my opinion. So if OP goes that route, OP needs to get into one of the big 4 or big 4 carib medical schools.
