No need to argue law vs med. Law mostly medicine rejects. If could do med they would have done, why settle for a life of uncertainty?

If you compare the salary for law/med, law is laughable.

Medicine:

Year1-Year 5 (MBBS). Year 5-Year 6 (HO $6000/month) Year 6-Year 11 (MO $8500/month)

Year 11 (locum GP $250,000/year)

Law:

Year 1-Year 4 (LLB). Year 4-Year 5.5 (Part B+ bar exam $2500/month).

Year 6 NQ (Big 4 $7500/month) Year 11 PQE 5 (Big 4 $13000/month).


Salary aside, a local Med graduate (male) gets to serve his NS as an MO, earning more than those law students who had to do their NS right after poly/a levels.

Employment prospects, lets not even talk about that. 100% of YLL Med grads are in full employment, barring those who failed/dropped out in Med school. Whereas for Law, most are struggling to land a Big 4 TC and get retained having to settle for low value work in small firms for a rice bowl that will break anytime if the economy is bad
lol this entire post is so biased its pathetic.

Why are people still comparing law vs med? This is so passe la the 2000s or early 2010s.

The world has moved on people. Nobody drops to the floor and prostrates themselves at either doctors or lawyers any longer. So, please get over yourselves.

When I qualified for NUS law in the late 00s early 2010s, I thought that it was a great achievement.

Now all that me and my wife hope for is to quickly redeem our condo mortgage, upgrade to a landed property, hope our kid doesn't f**k it up and at least qualifies for a university, and retire as soon as we can.

You guys can keep arguing with yourselves over which line of work is more prestigious.

Wrong. I get a mini-erection when I sit SQ business class and get called a Dr.
