    Does anyone have information about what saying yes to work-study on the FAFSA signifies? Would saying yes mean they could offer you less loans or grants? Do they actually find you a job?

    Are most of you out there saying yes or no to the work-study question?

    Definitely no! That's for undergrad. Med students don't work!!! (for pay, that is).

    Welcome to SDN!!! :D

    Hi nicknack-

    In all seriousness - definately put "no" for the work-study option. This really is an undergraduate option and essentially not applicable for med students, we will have plenty of work to do! Work study positions are, like, washing glassware for $6/hour, which will not likely put a dent in the amount of money we need to spend, just take out big fat loans!

    I think the WS options depend on the school and I am having the same dilemma. Is signing up for WS wise for medical school? I think I will post that question on the Allopathic site.
