    chose the right lender and you shouldnt have to worry about gradplus loans. depends on the school's tuition and living expenses. gradplus are marked at 8.5% compared to stafford at 6.8%

    the higest one I found was Chase that offers upto $46K/yr for stafford loans

    Im curious... do they look at how much in debt you are already becuase of how much you've borrowed for your undergrad...

    I am about 50,000 in debt just from my undergrad, to the point where now I am paying 100% out of my pocket for all my post-bacc since I have used up the maximum allowable from stafford loan for undergrad student

    I hope this doesn't hurt me when I apply for other loans when Im ready to attend medical school

    They cap you with Stafford at 189,000 or something similar to that, so you will most likely be pullin' a few dollas of the Grad Plus Loans.
