Why I became a pilot and not a doctor...

When young, I decided to go to Medical School .

At the entrance exam we were asked to arrange the letters NPEIS and form the name of an important body part which is most useful when erect.

Those who said spine are doctors today.

The rest of us went to flight school.

I have 2 dear friends that are doctors just retired and 2 friends that are pilots retired.. All are so impressive in my opinion of them, but they were impressive before being doctors and pilots.

I'd like to know the females who had to become pilots rather than doctors due to this quiz...

As I read the subject line and before I read the post, I thought maybe you decided it was easier to deal with ATC than with patients.
