So...I will have 0 debt entering med school next year since I went to school in state. Say med school costs 40,000 a year just for tuition. Tag on another 15,000 for room and board, 5000 for other expenses..and at a minimum I'll be spending 60,000 a year..probably more. That equates to 240,000 debt upon graduating. Taking account of the fact that interns and residents make piss poor salaries....I figure I won't be making 6 figure until I'm 30 and done with residency. Why do people always assume docs easily pay off 400k + in debt quickly when they don't make money until their 30? Am I missing something here!?
