I am hoping to be attending dental school in 2005; however, I do have a question regarding financial aid. I am currently married and will probably have to move closer to school once I start. The school I want to attend does not offer housing. In this case can I include some of my living costs (rent, utilities, etc) into my loan amount?

I am new to the financial aid process so please be as detalied as you can.

If I am unable to do so I do not think I can afford to go to school. What other ways can I go about this?

The dental school will include a housing allowance in their annual budget (although it may be much much less than you are currently spending on housing) they use to determine your loan amounts.
