I am a 29 yr-old male (married with children). I am not in the best financial shape. I was laid off from my CAD Operations Manager position over 8 months ago, (due to the lack of work in the telecom field), and cannot find another technical job to save my life. I have decided to go back to school and get into the medical field. I have been volunteering at the local hospital and am doing very well with my grades. My main problems are: 1) I do not have GREAT credit 2) I do not have a huge savings 3) I do NOT come from wealth in any way I know that I can clean up my credit and that I can get a job doing just about anything, so those aren?t life threatening. My question is: How can I afford to go to school? I want, more than anything to be a doctor, and I do not think getting accepted is going to be a major problem. I am truly afraid that, because of my financial situation, I will not be able to attend. Has anyone in here overcome these ailments & gone on to med school, in spite?
