In brief: It depends

There controversy regarding college and who should pay for it.
Being asian it was expected we go to college, & parents would pay. However, i wanted to pay my own way thru college. I worked my way through, i completed medical school, & i feel that I am a much better doctor for having experienced the world instead of getting a free ride.I can relate to pts much better. It is an individual decision.
