I do not mean to offend anyone. I like anyone of you am looking to get into a dental school, ANY DENTAL SCHOOL. But at times I think to myself is it realy worth it to go to a private dental school and graduate with $250,000 in loans??? Or is it better to do something else with my life, even though this has been my goal all along. As a dentist how easy time we would have to pay off that loan. Lets put the interest and goals asid, and just economically speaking is it worth it to go to a private school if the source of the money for tuition, fees and living expenses is going to be only from loans??? And does anyone knows the order of most expensive dental schools. I heard BU, temple, Harvard, NYU are on the top of the list.
