I'm working on being 100% self employed with a number of different businesses.  Insurance and financial services to start with.  If I can get enough people working for me I might just semi retire and live off that, or if I have a fat enough portfolio I'm just gonna sell my book of business and either retire or move onto different ventures. But yeah, I'm trying to be independent.  Forget working for someone else.  I hate being a time/wage slave.    

yeah im highkey pounding at my keyboard rn getting heated, but its really nothing we can do about it razz So how was your day today?

Becoming a doctor for the money is a horrible idea. I happen to know someone who went through medical school for the wrong reasons and now has a lot of regret, but what can you do at that point? you've spent your twenties in school, you'll probably owe at least a couple hundred grand in student loans, so you have to keep moving forward with a career you chose for the wrong reasons. Don't pick anything based on salary, it's not worth it. 

My friend also became an anesthesiologist and now he's worried because there is a lot of talk that nurse anesthetists will replace anesthesiologists one day as the country continues to move toward affordable health care (you can pay a nurse anesthetists significantly less than a doctor doing the same thing). 

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

This is exactly me. I want to help people but I'm not sure exactly how I want to help people. My whole life I was told medical was the way to go with the typical stable job stereotypes and what not. My original plan was to become an oncologist because I wanted to help people and I find cancer to be really interesting, but at the same time I don't know if I would be able to put myself through all the schooling knowing that it's what? 15+ years? I'm already having difficulty managing 2 jobs and taking all these science courses that I'm not even sure if I want to continue. So right now I'm trying to figure out what I have a passion for and what I'm genuinely interested in regardless of the pay.

Engineering seems like a promising field, for anyone who is uncertain or who's currently in high school thinking about prospective fields to study in. If you're up for the schooling, which is fairly extensive and pretty challenging from what I've heard.

My brother who graduated with a degree in bio-medical engineering is doing quite well. With the internships and co-op's he took part in during his 4 years at school, he was able to network and set up solid job offerings for post-graduation.

Even during the co-op's companies like GSK (GlaxoSmithKline) were paying him to work, while he was receiving college credit I remember him saying he was making $25-27/hour just for a co-op at one point. 

I prefer carcinogens to endorphins.

You guys should also know that you don't really get to pick what kind of doctor you become. You don't just go to medical school and say "I want to be an Oncologist" and then they train you for it. Everything is based on exams. Oncology is probably one of the most, if not the most difficult fields to get into.

I'm studying international market and management anthropology. It's very interesting, there's a semester abroad next year, everything is cool. 
But part of me kinda want to drop out and study graphic design like Drew. I won't end up making the same money, but i'm thinking it might be more chill to work in that field and not as much of a  9-5 minded business.

I wanted to be a pilot.

I'm graduating in March after winter quarter with a 3.2 GPA. Electrical Engineering with emphasis in Power System Analysis and Embedded Systems (Microcontroller/Microprocessors). Interning as Software Engineer for an Avionics/Electronics company, getting paid 20+ per hour; working on a military helicopter made by Boeing for Canada. I don't know my future plan (I wanna go Power), but I have the skill sets and tools for doing any Elec/Computer/ComputerScience jobs.

School was pretty much all about gathering previous quizzes and tests, copy pasting codes and lab reports, cheating on open laptop quizzes/tests/finals and all sorts of other things that can help you. So if that's something you wanna do, AMA. Don't get me wrong, you still have to learn the basics, to survive.

I know y'all are just voicing thoughts and looking out for those who might be making a mistake, but i have done my research on it, and money is secondary to the amount of help i would be providing, i might not even become a doctor and just conduct research after med school, but if all goes according to plan, those are the two specialties i would love to be matched into, and that remark about the anesthesiology nurses is interesting, because i did hear someone talking about how all the an. nurses he has met are the ones doing the real work, and the doctor is just overlooking everything and isnt a necessary piece except for the expertise in which he has. interesting.

 I'm a test taker, which leads to weird combinations of things like a 3.3 weighted highschool gpa and a 32 ACT, i just don;t have the time or commitment to do all the busy work teachers assign on the day to day basis, but i feel as if i;m much better suited for college, how is the daily life of a student in college?
