Plus at the rate of 100 per hr, for eight hour a day for five days per week, you shld be bringing in 20k, not 11-12k. So either there is a lack of work or the pay isn't 100per hr. Also there is liability and Please rmb to refer corneal ulcer to Ed.
And a lot of times you actually have to work on ph, and after hours.

The tuition fees for MBBS is also higher than law tuition by a large margin. At least 3x more in Singapore context. Plus associated bond is expensive to break.

Top lawyers always earn more than top doctors. (Top 20%)
Average lawyer is same as average doctor. (Mid 50%)
Bottom 30% doctors slightly better than bottom lawyer as doctor have a better baseline in this climate.
And yet investment bankers and sales and traders earn higher than both professions at all levels of seniority throughout their career.

Don't take my word for it, an equity analyst costs than double London MC's top equity partners' billing per hour:
