    Do D.O. schools have a lot of funds for grants.... and are they usually need based??

    I am 25 years old and have claimed myself for over 5 years... I am single.... I make about 30k, but obviously I won't be able to work during med-school... What are my chances of getting grants or scholarships???
    Is it correct that my parents info won't be included in the FAFSA b/c of my age?? My Dad is retired and will not be able to contribute to my financial need in med-school.....

    Thanks,


    Mike

    Being almost 30 (next Saturday hint hint), I'm kinda in the same boat. I haven't been dependant on my parents since I've been 19. Talkin with the financial aide peeps at the schools, what I'm going to do is give them all information, and see what works out best. Although, my $$ is on me being independant (pun intended)
