A dean of admissions told me once that I should NOT choose a medical school based on how much it cost. Ideally, I can see how this is true. But in reality, how true is this? How many people out there really don't consider money when it comes to choosing a school? How many people make a decision based on the cost and regret it later because they end up at a school that they really don't want to be at?

they probably meant that there is always a way to get med school paid for (at least short term) with loans, gov't funds, etc. and when you pay it back, youre getting pretty wealthy.

It was probably the dean of an expensive med school that doesn't give much financial aid (which is most).

You gotta do what's right for you and give finances the weight you think it deserves. There's nothing better we can say than that. In fact, you may go somewhere that's cheaper and end up liking it there more than you would have at the other place. Then again, how would you ever know...
