    Your story is probably more inspirational than any of the junior doctors
    ****s sake. You do a medical degree and get back to me. Anyone passing this ****ty, isolating degree is inspirational.

    I was stating that her post sounded good and neutral until she started putting in opinion.

    And as to your point, it's a damn sight easier than many other parts of the world with less mobile social classes, believe me.
    it wasnt much of an opinion really, just what i see as the general trend... and i'm pretty confident that what i said was true and doesnt weaken the other points i was making

    Lots of arguments going on here about middle class students, and "having it easy" etc. I am a penultimate year medical student, having come back to studying as a mature student due to personal circumstances. Yes, there are a lot of middle class students in my year, however there are a small handful of students who do not have it that easy. I am one of them. I am an independent student, and I do not have rich parents. Yes, I grew up on a council estate, but through hard work (several years of working in the City), I have now brought my own flat.

    I wanted to study medicine to enable myself to have a fulfilling job, providing a vital service to the public... so, having calculated the amount of debt I would end up with, I decided to enrol into Med School anyway. I have had to borrow a lot of money. However, in order to reduce my debts, as well as paying my mortgage and improving my cash flow I have funded myself by running my own business, which employs two members of staff full time.

    Having watched some of the episodes of Junior Doctors, I am not sure if I am inspired, but rather, I am getting a real taste for the work that I have committed myself to, and I simply cannot wait!!!

    My personal obstacles are my own, and I do not expect anyone to pay for them, or to give me any credit for overcoming them. Regardless of where I come from, when I become a doctor, all I want, is to be a good one!... And I think that applies to ALL the doctors who qualify today.
    Well played man.

    Managing to run a business while studying medicine or any degree for that matter deserves props.

    Come to Barts for the day. This social class bs is long finished (pls re: recent Independaant article on % who consider themselves middle class)
    It is reassuring to know that your anecdote and impossible invitation indicates both class equality as being achieved and an extremely counter-intuitive notion when university fees are set to exceed maximum tuition fees loans. I have reconsidered, you were right to chastise the original poster.

    She overcame what seems, at least superficially, like more hardship than the people on junior doctors.
