Am I right to go into medicine?

I am not american. I did my undergrad outside of usa. But I intend to go to med school in usa. I absolutely hate nyc. No friends, no gf. So my reason for going into medicine is so I could one day end up living on the shore of lake tahoe and hopefully having an office within walking distance of my home. Then i could also have a hot wife from russia. And i would be more or less isolated from americans.. But i dont even know if drs really can get good jobs on lake tahoe??
And ive already submitted my med school application. The alternative plan of military->mba seems like too much work. But of course I envy people who can get mba and live in moscow with 6figure incomes. they can go on vacations to finland and to greece. and they can switch 1 hot woman for another. in usa even a millionaire would be happy to have 1 hot woman.

i think medicine is ok as a career. of course we have to write personal statements about how we are so passionate about it and i am certain most people exaggerate their "passion". i think the most appealing part about medicine is that i can supposedly work on lake tahoe or in santa barbara or any other exotic place in usa. also once you become a doctor it is possible in certain specialties to work 6months on/ 6months off. maybe i am mistaken and it's not really possible. but certainly i wouldnt have to commute to manhattan. and there is a slim chance to end up at some university in europe once youve saved up enough money to take the low salary in exchange for prestige. im sort of a jew but russia is obviously #1. i think any country in east europe is great if you make 6figures. no one would ever think about immigrating to usa if he could make the same amount of $$ in his old country. i studied biology and math. but it was more biology than math. so i have enough aptitutde to be an actuary barely. but that's not something i could do as a career. it's too nerdy. i could learn a programming language but again not to the level to make it a career... thats why the only alternative to medicine is infantry officer followed by mba. but that again requires too much work(6yrs before you get any kind of reward).

i know if i finish med school, i can take a job as a consultant(in business) and move to moscow. but thats as far fetched as going into the military right now. i mean throwing away a stable career with big money and lake tahoe to start out with a $150k/yr job and a chance to become unemployed with med school debt. but otherwise i must isolate myself to that place in the middle of nowhere and be happy with 1 woman:( in moscow if you are rich and you live in a metropolitan area you can do anything you want with your love life.

Sounds like you really like Americans. When I pick a Doctor my first choice is the nut job. You'd probably be perfect as a pathologist but please stay away from the living.
