... apparently still means that you earn less than the boys. from "DVM Newsmagazine":
"The mean starting salary in 2006 for men in private practice totaled $56,722 while women went to work for $2,000 less."
"Although the survey reports 28.1% of male graduates receive individual retirement account benefits versus 22.1% of female graduates, women in the study might not have held out for fringe benefits due to flexibility, location, or relationship issues."
"... women reportedly hold more educational loans than their male counterparts in veterinary medicine."
Boo. Of course, if I were in this for the money, I'd just become an M.D. instead- the average starting salary for a general practitioner is $120,00- $150,00 a year. But what fun would that be?
