I've been looking at the cost of attendance for a few DO programs, and I'm trying to figure out if ~$15000/yr savings (based on info from school websites) is significant enough to sway my decision of where to attend, or if those amounts are even accurate. So, I was hoping some currently enrolled students would be able to enlighten me on two topics... How close do your yearly bills and expenses (tuition, transportation, personal, etc.) come to the estimated yearly amounts on schools' websites? Is it close? Higher? Lower? For those of you financing 100% of the cost of your medical education, how much are you/do you expect to be in the hole upon starting your residency? Thanks everyone!
