  1. Sweetheart, I work 40 hours a week to pay my way through school and have worked my ass off to get where I am. I think I can talk about how socioeconomic factors come into play better than you. As for how much schools cost, it doesn't look like you've done enough research on tuition, grants and bank loan limits – maybe you should do that first before you bash a whole field of professionals who are more qualified than you.
  2. This post frustrates me to no end because it assumes equal opportunities for all students who apply to medical school. You have an immature understanding of the world if you're going to assume that cultural, socioeconomic or health factors shouldn't be taken into consideration when determining an arbitrary level of "excellence". While you're correct in saying that hard work and persistence are important, so is financial stability and wellness. If you have an issue with practising with others who may have taken a different route and can't come to terms with the fact that people have different paths than you, perhaps you should reevaluate your definition of service in medicine.
