    I have already posted this question on the Medstudent (Osteopahtic) board, but I want to hear what other premeds think also. My biggest concern about going to an osteopathic school is the accumulation of a large debt. I love the osteopathic profession and would much rather be a D.O. But at the same time, I am considering my state school (University of Iowa) which will be much less expensive. Does anyone have any thoughts, concerns, or advice about the accumulation of this debt of $100,000+? I really do not want to go into the military, so are they any other scholarships that would help cover the expenses? Thanks in advance!

    Yes, there are a at least 2 other opportunities. They are both through the gov't. They pay your tuition and you serve in underserved areas in the U.S. I plan on applying to them both. "underserved" can be rural, urban, prisons, reservations... - anywhere they deem to be underserved. There is a min. number of years (2 yrs. I think) to serve and after that it is year for year ($/work).

    Hawkeye,

    I have also thought about the money that I'll probably owe everyone in this world by the end of medical school. You see... I would probably have to pay for med school through loans. However, I 've realized that $100,000 is a small price to pay for my lifelong dream to come true. I'll probably earn that back in a few years anyways. But... if you're still worried about the money, there are scholarships out there for graduate programs, including medical schools. Just look them up on the internet. I am sure you'll find tons of them. Good luck!
