    1/2 of all docs would 'do it again'? Is it all worth it?

    I have a simple question for all you nontrads who have been through it - is it all worth it? Medicine seems that it will be challenging, rewarding, and so, so interesting. However, I'm disheartened with some stats I've heard that only 1/2 of doctors today would 'do it all over' if they could...
