4. excuse me?
how many years of med school have you been through? Being a med school student myself i can say that cost is not the only major issue facing us. There is this little thing called stress. I have atleast triple the work load that i had in undergrad. We have multiple major exams every week- we get no more than 1 week for summer break and 1 week for christmas. Many of us keep blankets and pillows in our cars because we dont have time to go home so we sleep in the parking lot. And after the 4 years it doesnt end there- we have 3-4 more years of this thing called residency where you get paid less than the guy who waxes the floors yet work upwards of 80-100 hrs a week. So excuse me for wanting to get paid a sizable sum of money after going through all this.
