Hi, I'm new to this forum and am hoping someone out there would help me out in a tough decision I am debating about. I am an international student who is doing undergrad here in the U.S., and would very much like to go to a medical school here. I am currently a junior and hope to start applying this summer, but first I need to know which schools offer any kind of financial assistance to foreign students to obtain an M.D(not M.D./Ph.D). So far, I know only Columbia, Harvard, and Baylor have some kind of aid for international students. Is there anyone who has gone through a similar kind of search and knows more schools that have financial aid programs for non-citizens? I have also heard that loans are generally not a good idea, since they have significantly higher interest rates for non-citizens, and considering the paucity of income that you will have during residency, you'll be in debt for a long time. Is there anyone more knowledgeable about these things, and are there other types of private/public aid that is available to people like me?
