In actual fact zero went to nus to study anything else other than medicine. (Interestingly no one did law, but I was from a bio/chem/math/econ class lah)

Hence we will always compare with these people and not the normal blue collar workers in the other industries. All of a sudden 200k/year don't sound a lot .

Law is not even lucrative unless you are in the top 5% that can get into an international firm.

NQ pay for Big 4 starts at $6500-$7000 a month and the hours are comparable to a MO.

Letís not even get into business/finance, only the very few minority can make it into investment banking
