BANKERS MAKE 5x WHAT LAWYERS MAKE
« on: December 12, 2006, 06:28:10 AM »
A typical MD at Goldman makes $5M per year while the typical partner at a V50 would be lucky to make $1M. I am wondering why so many of you want to become lawyers when you could make so much more in banking.

You know who's richer? Billionares. That's right, I said it. Why aren't you one of those? Hop on that career path, man, the train is leaving the station.

Why become a banker when you could become Bill Gates? Seriously- he makes more than bankers.

I think it would take me a long time to get through medical school, residency AND THEN learn how to be a banker.
I must admit that I may have been infected with society's prejudices and predilections and attributed them to God . . . and that in years hence I may be seen as someone who was on the wrong side of history.  I don't believe such doubts make me a bad Christian.  I believe they make me human . . .

MD = managing director.

Because not all of us care more about money than anything else.  :)
