2. usefulness of the career(you can always give people advice)
3. helping sick people
4. money

1. Being a doctor is a zillion times better than a regular desk job -- interesting diseases, interesting patients, interesting peers
2. Sense of accomplishment when helping people
3. I wont have to worry about money
4. Easy access to drugs (just kidding)

Ditto. Oh, and for the letters after my name of course.

Because there's nothing else I feel passionate enough about to devote the rest of my life to..

You'd think having an OB/GYN as a dad would shy me away from it, seeing the absolutely horrendous life-style and all.. I think it made me even more interested..

They still tell me not to go into OB every day.. I think that makes me want to do it even more :hardy: :smuggrin:

It's all about the alpabet soup.

Helping sick people is overrated

Aaaaarg, I hate that question. Almost every frickin interviewer asked me that. I just do, okay? I should have pulled the old shrink trick and turned the question around back at them...

Be sure to get your BS in line before interviews. Cause it WILL come up.
