The least shocking survey result ever

money2.jpgA recent survey of 1,000 pre-med and pre-law students found that a great many law students are hoping for a big pay day, more so than their med school colleagues.

“We asked a question about earning power,” Fidler said. “To what degree does earning power factor into your deciding to pursue medicine? We found that just under half of those going into medicine said it factors in very much or somewhat.”
For pre-law students, the numbers are a bit higher, Glen Stohr, director of pre-law programs for Kaplan said, with around 71 percent indicating the same response.

Other questions on the survey included “is the sky blue” and “does grass grow.”
