Ouch, that is a very expensive state school . If you are very happy there, then it will all be worthwhile in the end (well, that is what I tell myself anyway) .Originally posted by sacrament
JEEZ, I wish! I'm shooting to be under $160,000 in loans, thanks to what has to be the most expensive state school in the nation. I love OHSU, but I'm starting to wonder if it's worth the money.
Trust me, money will not be a problem. If you get in, the financial aid office will find a way to get you the money to pay for not only tuition, but also living expenses. The one thing I'd suggest you do right now is to start looking around for scholarships. That's what I did and I was lucky to get 40K from a hospital where I used to volunteer. Not bad for only 50 hrs worth of work!Originally posted by femdoc
To all of you med students--
Just how healthy (or skimpy) are your financial aid packages? How much do you have for living expenses, and if it's not enough, how do you get by?

Wow! THis is definitely worth looking into. Thanks to you all for your insight. Best of luck with you studies!
