first, this is not a ferrari
two, 90% of the 5% that make >100k are over 50...

So what percent makes >100t and is between 20-35? 1% ? 0.1% ? lets say 0.01% That means in the US there's 30T people between the age of 20 and 35 that make more than 100t per year. is it possible that 60 of them have posted here?

I didn't see if this was discussed already, but some of the votes cast may have been for household income, not individual. Those married know that there is no such thing as individual income! That will skew the results. I'm a professional but am only over the $150k mark with my wife's income (she's in sales and makes more than I do!).

Very true. I didn't use household income either.

If I could make that kind of prediction I'd already be worth so many billions I wouldn't give a shit about market timing or if I still did people would come to Omaha for my investor meetings.

Not everyone was crushed in the housing bust... only the people that are whining about it! there's money on the sidelines, waiting patiently to capitalize on the misfortunes of those who are left holding the bag (in both the market and the housing bust). The questions are... where and when.... not a pretty thought, but that's kind of where we are these days....

I wouldn't say "plenty" when you consider how many jobs there are that don't pay 150+...

I think an M3 is a great gift to yourself. Gradschool isn't all that much fun, and if your new found success affoards you a nice ride while going to and from that new office, I say go for it!

All the reviews are solid, everyone who drives it seems super pleased. You probably won't regret it!

MD's don't make anywhere near 150k when they graduate from med school.

Residency is a different story.

ya if we talking household income then I would be over the 150k mark as well.. but I didn't consider it that way because her income is her income and my income is her income...

Damn how did that happen???

keto, true... straight after med school, most interns are making what? 30k? and not even that much more after your residency? but, as i understand, i thought mds weren't allowed to "practice" on their own until after their residency? so i guess that was my definition of graduating from med school, but obviously, was not the correct one.

how is residency a different story? most resident physicians hover between $40-60k depending on location.

Very few professions pay at this level right out of school. And for the few that do, even fewer individuals are the recipients of this level of income. Sorry, just the facts.

I'm not in the tippy-top bracket, but I like my low-stress, non-managerial, 8- hour-a-day, jeans and t-shirt-dresscode job.

In short I'm lazy.

Don't get me wrong though, I'll hit that top bracket soon. I just need to switch jobs a few more times.

BTW, I'd like to personally thank the folks at Monster and Career Builder for indirectly helping pay for my BMWs.

I reckon I would like your type of a job because stress seems to be my middle name and an 8 hours day is something only happens when I take a half the day off.

That is sad. When you take your pay and divide by the insane hours you work, it isn't so hot.
8 hours is the way to go.
