Funny, I never really saw IM and peds as lucrative. Zack, if you felt that being a psychiatrist made you not a real doctor, did you ever consider switching into internal medicine full time? Also, how did you manage to hold down a practice and attend law school part-time? I'm interested in hearing more since I've wanted to pursue a JD for a while now, though more for personal experience than a complete career switch.
