Probably a shit ton more if you reliably invest into the SP 500 and don't waste your money.
you gotta sacrifice the best years of your life to become a doctor, would be hard seeing everyone around you having somewhat developed careers while you're still killing yourself in med school
No shit thats how world works
people draw some stupid stuff and call it ''NFT'' and make millions of dollars
people play video games and make more money than policemans firefighters and teachers
u always can become influencer and make 2x that
computer science / computer engineering = software engineering ?
fuck yeah, can't wait to finish my computer science degree in a short bit
the horrors of capitalism at its finest
"You can go from 230k starting salary"
Show me one programmer who you actually know who has a 230k salary out of college. You have to graduate top 0.2% of your class with honors etc to be placed in a company like Google or Microsoft out of college. Programmers get jobs through coding interviews. You have to train for them and create your own projects. I'm not even a programmer and I know that.
It's not this cut and dry.
Very few get to start of that High though, thats for the 10x’ers
Forgive me if I’m wrong, but why does it feel like med school and the study of biology and those sciences always revolve around the MCAT. I understand there are labs and experiments, you do, but I wish the MCAT was a little less significant. Luckily, I’m probably gonna be studying computer engineering, maybe CS. I’ve studied algorithms and DS. With how I have my life set up right now, I will be making 6 figures out of college. Perhaps out of Berkeley or MIT if I get lucky.
Even though I'm terrible at comp sci I'm gonna start REALLY grinding now cuz I got new ambitions recently. Only thing is I'm not really a super genius programmer but more of a brogrammer lmao but hopefully it still works out
own business, sales > any other 9 to 5 bullshit
"230k starting salary at 22 years old to 2 million/year within 9 years"
The vast majority of SEs never get to that level though. If you use FAANG companies as a reference, the application success rate is something like 3% of all applicants. Google, for example, gets somewhere around 3million applications/year. To get anywhere near the 2mil/year figure you mentioned, you're in the top 1-3% of employed SEs (L7/L8 or equivalent). You do the math. What you said about benefits/work-life balance is spot-on at virtually any level though.
Not too familiar with the medical world, but if you're a doctor at a level equivalent to an L8 SE at Google, you're likely making FAR more than 300k/year. Though I will agree, can't argue with the last part you mentioned about education.
streamer, youtuber > doctor
But Doctor still >
230k a year is for the basic family doctor and the doctor is stable
People who work in big companies will eventually get kicked when they get old but the older the doctor is, the more valuable it is.
The doctor is needed in every country and every corner of the earth. As a doctor, you can move to every country and they will welcome you with a high salary. But as a computer engineer, you won't get this treatment as there are tons of computer engineers.
in san francisco they are making up to 100k usd a year as junior front-end devs
i make barely 8k xDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
if you make 230k starting salary, you've already worked more in 4 years than a doctor has in 12 years
some people become a doctor because they want to contribute to society instead of coding the latest grindr update for you degenerates
classic burger view $_$
Med school on the US is garbage I agree.
Elsewhere it's another story, and it's much better to be the average doctor than the average programmer.
U don’t become a doctor for the money lol. Most doctor students have insane academic ability and would thrive in most fields. Also u can make even more if u work in finance. I know someone in PE making 350k with bonus out of college.
Finally, your best doctors(as an apples to apples comparison) make millions because they are open to the option of making their own private practices and they reap insane money off that
That's if you're good enough to be hired by Facebook at that level. Most jobs at Facebook pay way less
imagine being surprised
a random dude playing video game earns more than the policemen
dont listen to this fool. dont waste your time.. most pay you $12.50 an hour... its garbage
its not that easy to get job in top companies. if you are that good you will probably make that money with any job you have.
if you have no idea what the hell you're talking about, why you're trying to sound as if you have any idea what the hell you're talking about?
let's compare 10x programmers to everyday doctors, nice logic.
I'm indian, I'm gonna live in India most likely, why would I care about America's jobs
