Ali Binazir – Blog Archive – Why you should not go to medical school – a gleefully biased rant:

You should become a doc because you always wanted to work for Medecins Sans Frontieres and your life will be half-lived without that. You should become a doc because you want to be the psychiatrist who makes a breakthrough in schizophrenia treatment. You should become a doc because you love making sick kids feel better and being the one to reassure the parents that itll all be OK, and nothing elsein the world measures up to that.

But woe betide you if there’s anything else, anything at all, that would also give you that fulfillment.
