I'm graduating high school soon, and I'll attend a top university next year in America. It has a top 3 business school and a great econ department, it's very strong overall. My problem is should I pursue medicine or try to get a job on wall street as a trader? I know I can become a doctor and if I specialize in the right field I'll be making around $500,000 by the time I'm 32ish with potential to earn more later on. However, I realize that good wall street traders can earn millions in their twenties! Money is not everything but the lure of millions is too great. I don't know what to do career-wise (any suggestions?) I'm only asking this because the two fields are so different and I'll have to do different things if I'm to prepare myself.
