I currently have a career in the military. I am applying to school this summer in hopes of attending medical school in Aug 2000. Over the past few months I've cut my expenses to the bone (paying off the car, no cable, no long distance, zero balance on credit cards, etc.). Even with all of these reductions I am finding it very difficult to envision my family surviving on the budget of a medical student. I am applying to the military medical school and I think I have a good chance of getting in, but in the event that I don't get in I think life could get pretty tough. Does anyone have any advice on how to get some living expense money for a person in my situation? (Note: Having a "nest egg" to fall back on decreases your eligibility for non-loan financial aid!!!) Any input (even if you only want to share a similiar situation) would be GREATLY appreciated.
