    Somebody once said to me before I joined TSR, if you are going to join TSR then be very brave and disagree with the majority (if you agree with it not like a random 2 + 2 = 94) and show your courage and bravery...

    Therefore I am going to conclude:

    Dentistry > Medicine

    Thats not really what makes a degree though...some people study their degrees just for the love of it, not because of a job at the end of it, and with all the degrees that aren't vocational its very hard to generalise things like future earnings, available jobs, what time it will take to find a job etc. You could be a graduate from a well respected course who ends up in a low paying job, or from a course which isn't generally well respected who gets on a great grad scheme and makes megabucks.

    You just can't really measure medicine against most other degrees in the way you suggest I think, as medicine is primarily training for a future career, rather than 'just a degree'.
    Very good point. In fact the best response to a post I've seen in a while. (+ rep).

    Obviously for you dentistry is the Worlds Best Degree, as you want to become a dentist.

    If you said Medicine was the best degree than went and did dentistry woul would be insane!

    There is no "best" degree. It depends what you want to do.

    I don't know what it is I just don't think Medicine is for me.

    It is a great degree and you help a lot of people but I just don't think it's for me.

    I am literally in love with Dentistry though...:woo:

    I knew somebody would say this...:p:

    That is just my opinion to be honest, as said above I just don't think Medicine is for me.

    Dentistry is amazing...:cool:

    But I also agree that Medicine is an amazing degree...:woo:

    In a word, no.
    Aren't you the guy with the thread about whether the lifestyle that inevitably comes with being a doctor is worth the sacrifice ?

    So , does your answer here have anything to do with the decision you took ?

    I am indeed. My answer here is that its not for everyone (obviously), but it is for me, and the two aren't related really. I said no to it being the best degree as that'd be a pretty close minded thing to believe. (surfing studies anyone? :awesome: )

    The other thread was getting at not the degree/career itself, but what these detract from the rest of you time/life. In all honesty, I can't wait to start .

    Best as in most enjoyable? Depends.

    Best as in most helpful? Depends.

    Best as in most impressive? Depends.

    I think I see a pattern emerging...
