I'm in a dilemma. I have a couple options and I don't know what to do. I have about 50,000 in loans I need to pay off from undergrad and my master's in public health, but I am planning to go to medical school by 26 (I am 25 right now). Here are my options: 1) Work (research at EVMS) Fall 2007-Summer 2008 and then start EVMS post bacc fall 2008. but I'll be a year behind in my plan. Pros: I'll be able to pay for my loans and my job will pay for some of my tuition for the following year...Near family. Cons: A year behind in plan. 2) Enter UConn's post bacc program for the Fall 2007, work my a$$ off, and get into med school for fall 2008. Cons: away from family. Pros: more opportunities at UConn than EVMS, thinking about getting a PhD or MBA. I'll get out my va beach bubble...its so slow in va beach!!! What do you think?
