What’s up? Online, I’m just a random guy. Please spend a few minutes getting to know me and the purpose of this site if you’re just dropping in. This celebration can get started now that we’ve taken care of that.
The West Coast is where I practise as an attending physician. Molecular & Cell Biology was my college major. In order to get “job experience” after completing, I worked with in biotechnology industry after a few years after college. Finally, I was accepted to a medical school, although I had to pay for entirely out of my own pocket through student loans. I became a “doctor” after four years and a series of tests. My residency training took an additional four years, and I graduated throughout June of 2014. I had almost $300,000 in college loans by the time I became a genuine doctor (attending). That’s right… $300,000! In some states, that’s all you need to buy a house. You may think that sounds like lots. In 2015, the average debt of a med school graduate was $180,000, per the American dental Association (AAMC). As a result, I left college with a debt load that was far higher than the national average.
However, as of today, that $300k+ is dropped at around $160,000, which would be roughly half of what it was at the beginning of the year. It will take me a year or half to pay off your student loans at this pace. One small step to financial freedom and the freedom simply Peace The F @k Out of my work when that task is completed!
That concludes my first entry. In upcoming postings, I’ll go into further detail about how and why I became interested in personal finance, as well as my current debt situation and other aspects in PTFO-ing.
