Many of the other high paying specialties have much higher insurance costs as well.

    Thanks for your concerns about pharmacy, but I think I'll be fine. Many of my friends in this graduating class have already secured jobs making 110k+ per year. Certain areas of the country are saturated (primarily cities like Chicago and New York) but there are jobs out there and many states are considering expanding scopes (my state already has) to provide for more opportunities.

    I wasn't going after you, but just making a general statement. Sorry if it came out that way. The avg starting salary for a pharmacist is 80k in chicago.

    If she lives in the US, she still can be guilty of a crime, even if the "ACT" takes place down under.

    No worries, I apologize for being overly defensive.

    The market was hit hard with the economic collapse and with schools opening up in clusters around areas where there aren't ones needed. Chicago has like 5 schools (if I remember right) and many of their graduating classes plan on staying and working in Chicago. The salary date I'm looking at here:Salary.com Salary Wizard- Do you know what you're worth? says that the average salary in Chicago is 127k per year, although what they may be doing is offering new grads only 32 hours per week resulting in lower pay (which isn't too uncommon for saturated areas).

    Lot of pharmacists would be lucky to even get that here. Many of them are floaters that have to drive 50+ miles one way.

    I read the article and you're only guessing. I stick with the facts given. Besides, what judge is going to enforce an illegal contract? Last time I heard, prostitution (with or without a contract) is illegal.

    Hell, I'm still a virgin in certain senses of the word.

    If I could get a disease free, protection-wearing man to hand me $550K I'd be willing to give it up.

    Can't be any worse than a visit to the proctologist.
    “Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    LOL - true.

    I'm still betting the entire thing is a hoax.
