<<...Add another 4 years so now we are
talking 11 years since graduating from college. ...I guess 3 years of law school doesnt seem so bad to me. >>

Speedsurfer,
I am thankful that my school debt will "only" sit for three years, instead of 11. But on my way home from class today I was thinking about this conversation and it occurred to me (not for the first time) that after medical training the skill you have is something with a higher value than any dollar amount. What I will have at the end of my (albeit shorter) training is something really only of simple economic value. (Justice is a higher value, but I'm in a corporate program, so the value is more economic than human.
Before law school I was a medical malpractice defense investigator -- Gained a huge respect for all those good docs out there, whom I met only when they faced a lawsuit. Basically what I'm saying is that I think med school is one of those times when non-economic factors come into the cost-benefit analysis. Thanks for taking on all those loans and doing all that hard work so you can heal the rest of us!!
