The people who were willing to have sex with me thought I was very smart and good looking. I don't know what they tell doctors and lawyers.

one was a doctor, one was a lawyer, the other said her brother wanted to become an actuary before blocking me.

I haven't met any FSA or FCAS. But I have met some doctors that make me wonder how easy it was. And lawyers? Louie Gohmert.

I would say that the talent of randomly selected doctors or lawyers comes with a high variance.

If money is the be all end all, the cast of Jersey shore has most of us whipped.

Lawyer is the most overrated profession ever. Two thirds of people graduating from law school never even become one, and of the third that do get a job, maybe 10-20% manage to get a high-paying corporate job. Then they get to work for 80 hours a week while making ~150K and paying off their enormous loans. Only a tiny fraction of those people eventually become partners, general counsel, etc. and make the big money.

Doctors have much better job security, but many of them also have to work way more hours than I'd ever want to.

I've come to view the actuarial field as having about the same (or even a bit higher) expected value in terms of income as a Lawyer with much lower variance. You'll never make as much as a good trial lawyer, but then neither will most lawyers.

Recognition is ~0. The lack of enormous student loans is a huge plus.

What are there maybe 20,000 actuaries? There over a million lawyers. Who counted? Who cares?
