I apologize if these sort of posts tend to beat a dead horse! I got an e-mail from Case yesterday on the cost of attendance. The budgeted amount for living expenses was like $14,000 :scared: I understand that the amount is based on a single student's needs. My question for all of you students who are married (and possibly have kids) is HOW DO YOU SURVIVE? :confused: It seems like even a single student would go through the 14,000 pretty quickly. Please advise!!!!Thanks. You all rock.

Married with no kids = wife working.
Married with kids at home = food stamps and extra private loans.

What sort of private loans are available to dental students that would defer payments on the loan until the student completes dental school?
