This post reeks of jealousy. 4 years of medical school (I will have 200,000 in debt at the end of my 4 years), 3-7 years of residency (most likely 6 or 7) where you are worked like a dog (80-90 hrs a week) and making 40k, and maybe a fellowship of 1-2 years for advanced specialties. I won't break even until I'm 34, maybe, so you're damn right I'm going to enjoy it. I have worked and continue to work my ass off, so I refuse to work for free.
Over-priced lifestyle. I can't stand people like you.
