    I was just wondering how you guys plan on financing your med school education. I know that personally I'm already in debt after going to a $35K/year private liberal arts college....

    Every week I've been buying myself a Mass. Millions lottery ticket. If this strategy continues to prove unsuccessful, I'll have to take out loans.

    Loans, and the little money my fiance (she'll be my wife by the time I start) can contribute after paying for rent, car, food, etc.

    I'll definitely have some substantial loans. I'll have my pharmD when I start, so maybe one or two days a month I'll be your local Target Pharmacist so I don't have to borrow SO much.

    :(

    nope, you are not alone...

    loan, loan, loan, loan...for 4 straight years...

    then i will be under big a.. debt

    work my a.. off for next 10 years to pay off my debt and malpractice insurance to the hospital...

    hmmm...lovely...
     
  9. I'll be selling my soul to the Army. The upshot is that I will graduate with zero debt. Oh, and I'll get to shop tax-free at the PX/BX. The downside is that I'll have to do an Army residency and will be an Army doctor for 4 years after residency. May or may not be that much of a downside depending on your viewpoint.

    Loans here unless I get into the MSTP which is what I really want but if not then I'll do the MD portion on loans and most of the grad programs I've looked out give you a stipend and free tuition so the PhD part shouldn't add too much to my debt.
