Perfect. At this point what is keeping Tech out of the AAU?

Also, isn't the med school in Roanoke? Apparently Nebraska got kicked out of the AAU in part because their medical school was a separate campus, and the distance is comparable to Virginia Tech (57 miles between University of Nebraska-Lincoln and University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, 43 miles between Virginia Tech in Blacksburg and the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine in Roanoke).

Might not want to get your hopes up.

It's because they separated their grants into two different categories so it depends on how Tech counts this.

Removed from the AAU.[8] Chancellor Harvey Perlman claimed that the lack of an on-campus medical school (the Medical Center is a separate campus of the University of Nebraska system) and the AAU's disregarding of USDA-funded agricultural research in its metrics hurt the university's performance in the association's internal ranking system.[7]

That's from wikipedia. Reads like the med school was apart of the general Nebraska system and off campus so it didn't count. So I guess it depends on the exact VT/Carillion dynamic and our agriculture research.

Sweet happy for the school.

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:

Guess you could say that our ninth college got medically cleared?

Am I wrong to think this will eventually benefit the Hokie Club? Doctors make more than engineers and having wealthy alumni is never a bad thing.

If you are like UVA, yes. If you are like VCU, no.

Isn't the Med school located in Roanoke? If this is the case, then I don't see this helping the Hokie Club as much as it would if it was on campus. Most medical school attendees don't come from the undergrad ranks of that school. And since they are not getting the campus experience I don't see them donating.

I haven't given, and will never give, a nickel to my grad school. If I ever stop being an idiot and living hand to mouth, I will make the Hokie Club a priority.

Only if they go undergrad to Tech. You also have to wait 4-15 years after Ned school to start seeing the increase in pay scale.

Yea, I've heard that Ned school is really Flandering.

Well, you can see the increase in pay scale immediately, but you also see the similar increase in student loan payments.

No you don't. They make about 35,000 as interns and residents.

I thought internships were during school and residencies were essentially medical post-docs. A quick Google search claims that first-year residents get paid over $50k on average, which while much greater than $35k is still less than I expected.

Thanks, I learned something today.

They also work a fuck ton of overtime which I don't think is included in those numbers? So in the end it's a bit more than that overall.

A previous job brought me into contact with many residents - the hours they worked were insane. One that I knew didn't bother renting a place as he spent all of his time in the hospital, sleeping in lounges, empty rooms, etc.

I don't believe they got overtime pay.

My wife routinely worked over 100 hours a week.

I remember those days as a younger engineer. The 60 hrs of OT a week was a nice bonus for the extra hours required to get the work done.

They don't get OT.

Yea, it's kind of like me waiting for my overtime checks to come in from the Marine Corps..... Going to be waiting for a looooooooong time.
