    Is medical school worth the debt in the long run ?

    I think one of the most popular ways I see young docs coping with debt is through Uncle Sam. Thats probably what I would do if I were in their shoes.

    Is medical school worth the debt in the long run ?

    Astro 14 that is great! I think with help from bank of dad and playing your cards right that can happen. Some of these kids start with nothing and have to finance all 8-10 yrs of school. Good luck to your daughter!

    Is medical school worth the debt in the long run ?

    Well maybe. My daughters tuition is 22-25 $k/ year + $800/month rent + living expenses etc, usually costs me $40k/ yr. Private schools tuition alone often 50-60K. Many med schools now are 40-60K per year. It is not hard to rack up debt.

    Is medical school worth the debt in the long run ?

    Income depends on specialty, academic vs non-academic and private practice vs employed. Generally you can make the most with a good busy private practice, usually less for employed, and usually lowest of all academic. If in private practice you usually are joining other older docs who have...

    I am a D.O. and have been in practice for 20 yrs. I love what I do but I work 30-40% harder for 30-40 %less than when I started. I talked to a 3rd year OB/GYN resident a little while back and she was $487K in the hole and 33 yrs old. The last doc we hired she and her husband were $600K in...

    Are New Vehicles Too Expensive?

    Well at least in my case my income has not increased 3.5% per year! As far as diesels go when I bought my 03 diesel was $1.10 per gallon and i estimated it would take 75000 miles to break even for the Cummins diesel option. At the time I had a 4 horse living quartes gooseneck that when filled...

    What Do I Need To Start Wrenching?

    Don't forget the beer. Some projects like a routine oil change are a one beer job, others take a whole day and may require a case if you have enlisted friends to help. My friends are really thirsty.

    Are New Vehicles Too Expensive?

    Prices are insane. My 2003 Dodge 3500 is slowly rusting to pieces and I went a lookin at new one ton trucks. Bought the 03 new for $38 K out the door Laramie with 5.9 Cummins and I questioned my sanity then. I actually need and use a HD truck hauling horses hay landscape material and our...
