My appeal was to those who are not passionate and compassionate, and who only care about themselves and nothing more. I must apologize if I offended you, it was not my intention, but am sure that many docs and aspiring docs can identify and judge for themselves whether or not they are in for patients or prestige. As a patient, I have been very disappointed with a lot of doctors and that is actually what motivated me to become a physician.
Is there a specific example you'd like to cite here? You just keep saying how a lot of premeds and docs are arrogant, self-centered, and only in it for the "fame".
I'm pretty sure most of us realize that being a doctor isn't sunshines, rainbows, and having three-ways with starlets in Vegas on Saturday nights.
Most of us are genuinely interested in the pursuit of medicine. Where are you getting your information from?
