I realize there have been polls like this, but it's time for a new one.
Y?I realize there have been polls like this, but it's time for a new one.
5k winner; just enough to pay for all your app fees!IT depends. How much did I win?
Ditto.If anything it would make me more keen to go. No longer worrying about debt or how much a given specialty pays would be a huge weight off my shoulders!
I would probably open up a private practice and see like 10 patients a day so I can actually spend time with them.
Okay enough fantasizing
I feel like this is a good way to weed out those that would love the profession so much that they would do it for free and those who wouldn't. Honestly, if I won 5000 a week for life or something I would probably just work as an MLS while saving my 5000 a week. Not to say that I wouldn't love being a physician but I'm not going to lie, I probably wouldn't go to med school.
For life. Like the publishers clearing house prize. Life would be good...Well, it depends. $5,000 a week for how long? 2 weeks, or for life?
Most physicians in other countries do their work for free anyways.
Yea I'd still go. I stopped thinking about money once I knew I would go into major debt from medical school. I don't think it would change if I was on the other end of the spectrum. It's a passion for me. I would just have nicer things along the way.
Where did you do your undergrad at?
Where did you get the hay for all those straw men?
If you have a reason for choosing medical school after a 50M lotto winning, I am happy to hear your nonstereotypical reasoning.
Oh, I'm so excited to try to explain my reasoning to a person who has proposed the question as a challenge.
Get over yourself.
So you tried to directly call me out first then retreat at being engaged with that particular cop-out?
Ok, no problem.
Good luck going forward.
Your entire list is a bunch of straw man arguments, end of story. It doesn't address anyone in particular, and makes a parody of every single viewpoint it sets up. It masquerades as an exhaustive list of possible reasons to go to medical school despite winning the lottery in order to knock down (almost) all of them, but in reality none of the arguments are fleshed out in a realistic way and all of your objections are sophomoric and trite.
This is not about you versus my personal reasons. It's about your entire post, which was overly aggressive, being a collection of failed arguments.
Oh hell no.
I would pay off all of my and my family's remaining debt, go to culinary school, move to a rural village in Japan and open a bakery.
