    I'll be very happy if I'll start on 28k, which will hopefully grow to 50k after ~6 years. That would be after 6 years of medicine at a top tier uni - I hope this isn't too presumptuous.

    ...or I might be in a dead end FTSTA...

    Thinking of it now, I don't think I've met anyone very presumptuous about career prospects, only about how hard it is to get a 2.i.

    I've never understood why people always treat high incomes as things that are out-of-reach. They're not. My family hasn't been doing particularly well in recent years, since my dad's always been self employed (and business took quite a hit with the recession), but there was a time some years back when my technically working class family was earning almost £70,000 PA. How? They wanted it, they aimed for it, and they got it.

    You shouldn't shove pessimism down people's throats. A degree isn't an automatic pathway by any means, but if people know where they want to be then it may well be a necessary stepping stone, so if anybody here's presumptuous, it's you.

    Most of the people on TSR think going to a top uni guarantees them a job afterwards so no they aren't the only ones. I wouldn't worry about it though, they're deluding themselves. £100,000 a year in human resources? Where did they get that figure from?
