    Every medical student is eligible for $38,500 in Stafford loans per year of which $8,500 may be subsidized. Subsidized loans are for those that qualify for need-based aid.

    Scholarships of any type would be as competitive as you might expect them to be. Some are need-based some are merit-based and some are somewhere in-between.

    I borrow the max $8500 in subsidized allowed each year and about the same in unsubsidized. I get the max allowed in need-based school scholarships, then the rest is school loans, ~$5k or so.
