I'd like to think he's smiling. I don't think I'm exactly smiling and grunting at the same time.

She has to do her residency, which doesn't pay all that well, but I've got plenty of experience, and since we're moving to a big city, my earnings potential should triple or quadruple. After her residency, she'll be making Dr. money, which is even worse than what I'll be making.

The way I figure it, we should work hard for a while, save, and then travel, enjoy life, and maybe, along the way, think about raising some younguns.

So where's the big city? Does she have any preferences?

Residency is in Houston, Taxes (ha, that's funny). Anyway, we're there for one-two years, and depending on how this weird computer system works (residency matching program), we'll stay there, or move on.

If anyone is in Houston, Taxes, and needs a good in-house corporate attorney, let me know.

I'm 30, she's 26. And, 3rd Path, I've been out of school for 5 years in the real world, and the last two years of med school are pretty hardcore, just unpaid. As for the money, you are absolutely right. We aren't focused on it, other than to say we haven't had any for so long, that we look forward to being able to say to our sisters that their children won't ever have to worry about paying for their educations, or to our parents that they won't have any worries about their retirements, or to each other, yes, we won't starve this week if you buy that whatever.

It's just going to be nice to go from one small paycheck minus tuition to two better paychecks. You know?

Hey right there with you. I partied my way out of School in 94, and came back in January of 2000. I finished in December of 2000. 54 hours in one year, while my wife completed 27 hours that year. She will finish next May, and although I am not focused on the money, I cannot wait to have some of the stress off of me. I make 20K less than the average person with my qualifications due to the small city that I live in. When graduates and we move, it will be like having three incomes, because hopefully I will make what I am worth. ;)

Again, congrats on everything.

Thanks, you too. 57 hours in one year? I did 19 credits one semester, followed by 17 the next, followed by a 3 credit summer course and a second 4 credit summer course. That was a miserable school year, but you've outdone me. Ouch.

Underpaid, that's the story of my life, so I can feel your pain.

no slight intended re: the real world. med school isn't easy and residency ain't no cakewalk either.....and i know all too well the strain of a JD---and the incredibly tough early post years( 80 hr weeks, no prob). that was written tongue firmly in cheek.

but i was serious about the money. that new flush can be pretty heady( and why not after pb&j dinners for so many years). just be careful how fast you set the treadmill, cause once you're on it-its hard to get off. just a reminder of something you most likely already know. maybe its my age, but i've grown to appreciate all the reminders i can get.:)

Believe me, you're advice is not falling on deaf ears. We have a few things that we want that are luxury type items, but all in all, we aren't the big castle, jet set types. We're already talking about saving for retirement, college educations, etc...

Also, in my line of work, I've seen huge huge money types fall flat on their butts, and I've also seen people who looked like they had nothing, but had estates that were huge.

Thanks for the advice though. Now off to look at the newest porsche. (I'm only kidding - the only real luxo item I want right now is a TiBook, and you can't fault me for that)
