    This is probably a thread buried somewhere, but anyways....

    What is the general course of action for dealing with regular expenses while in dental school (cell phone bills, rent, daily expenses, etc..)

    It's my understanding that holding a job and maintaining sufficient grades is near impossible given that you're in class from 9-5 anyways and still have to find time to study along with everything else.

    Estimate how much your regular expenses are per month and for the year and then take out enough loan money to cover them and your tuition and fees.

    My sister has a part tiem job on the weekends while in D-school. The key is a flexible job that is fine with you taking time off

    Federal non-subsidized loans can be taken out to cover living expenses as part of what it costs to go to school.
