Anyone read the recent 'interest poll' of high school seniors?

Males- Medicine was second LOWEST
Females- Medicine was #1

Any ideas why???
Who in their right mind wants to go through 4 years of meds school and another 3- 5 or 6 more years of residency after that? Doesn't sound too appealing to me!
:p
And this is after college, when you can get a perfectly good well-paying job with an engineering or comp sci bachelors degree... <Sigh> well you used to be able to...

No...have the link?

I'd be interested in what qualifies as Medicine. Are both males and females thinking about becoming a physician or are they (and this can be taken to mean the respondents not necessarily the poll takers; there are MANY people out there that think nursing is taught in medical school for example) also thinking about nursing, allied health careers, etc?
