Do you regret that you didn't go to Med School?

Nah

We’re gonna win so much, you may even get tired of winning. And you’ll say, 'Please, please. It’s too much winning. We can’t take it anymore. Mr. President, it’s too much.' And I’ll say, 'No, it isn’t!' We have to keep winning!

No.

Financial Exam Help 123: The place to get help for the CFA® exams

Nope.

Simple math.

Why should one regret not going to med school if they are working in finance? The question makes assumptions that are not consistent with the decision considerations faced by most people who work in this industry.

Cuz doctors make more money and is more guaranteed. But I don’t regret it. Science people are usually smarter than finance people so it’s a lot harder!

I think I could get in here.

It’s much harder than finance! I’ve come across a few overconfident finance people who said they could do it if they wanted to but say the CFA was hard, phst, that’s like easy work compared to a regular semester of pre-med. And they tell you that pre-med is like drinking out of water hose and med school is like drinking out of a fire hydrant.

I think we’ve all seen the dragon graphic for CFA… i’d have to think of what science people have to fight…

For smart people they sure make retarded choices. Lol

I can definitely see the appeal to having gone the medical track.  There’s a community aspect to it, earnings are good, major hospitals like Mass General definitely create a good atmosphere as well.  You also get to make a real difference in people’s lives and the ability to be an expert in the field with good connections has great personal value as your family ages or in the event someone you care about gets sick.  In the few times I’ve had to deal with medical situations that required real or innovative care, I’ve come to appreciate the incredible importance of having a good doctor that knows what they’re doing (most are terrible).  

Anyhow, the realities of going the med school track are daunting, particularly for most 21 year olds.  I would have missed out on a lot in the process.  In addition, most doctors either have to deal with a minimum one of: 1) gallons of blood 2) dying people 3) gross stuff or 4) low pay and I didn’t know how I would have responded to a lifetime of that.  I think most people that struggle in other careers would have struggled worse attempting to survive med school.

Anyhow, it’s fair to question life choices even for people who were successful in their current track given the different life that stems off each decision.  Kind of boring not to.

Yuck - bodily fluids and ambiguous problems with hard-to-measure success outcomes.

I’m in the same boat. I can’t handle blood.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It be like that sometimes.

Same as many above….I can’t really handle blood or guts. I aggressively avert my eyes during replays of injuries, and I never could get into the fad of injury videos a la youtube or tosh.o or any of that stuff.

If it weren’t for my general squeamishness, I may have regretted it. But it was never really an option for me.

I have always wanted to be an architect

I regret that I did not become a doctor to pursue my dream to connect multiple humans’ digestives systems together in a chain.

If OP gets -5 votes should I lock the thread? This is insanely stupid. This thread makes me want to stab someone and then play around in their blood.

I’m afraid it’s the only way to prevent the continued descent into disgrace of the WC. Lock it up! Lock it up!

If the AMA wasn’t allowed to control the amount of students medical schools can accept, then the market would achieve equilibrium thus increasing number of doctors and reducing their earnings potential…in aggregate.  What strange form of socialism is this that only works in one direction, to bias doctor’s compensation higher?  No discussion of healthcare reform is complete without visiting the issue of how we let this market achieve equilibrium without simply importing doctors from abroad.

Seriously I’m pretty sure doctors from abroad are low quality too.

Without a doubt, US has the best healthcare in the world - for rich people. It’s more or less how everything works here.

I’m not sure that’s true, even for rich people.  It depends on what ails you.  If you have cardiovascular disease, like many Americans do, the results posted by cardio specialists in India far outperforms US.  This is because Indians have extraordinarily high rates of heart disease…so their doctors get a lot of practice.  Want cosmetic surgery?  Try South Korea for the same reason. Rare diseases, exotic cancers, etc….definitely the US has many of the best specialists.

lol you dont have to be rich to get the best medication. you literally need good insurance with 0% payment after your deductible. the larger your insurance, the more choices you have. so imagine if we had single payer. then there is so much purchasing power that we’d bend all the healthcare professionals over. im pretty sure in most of those countries, anyone who is reasonably smart will head over to the us. cuz this is where we got cash $$$
