Does anybody have experience with this?

My car is about to die a miserable death. With my personal situation, I will probably need another in medical school.

Problem is the student budget looks like I'll only have about $500/month after paying rent. After all my misc living expenses, this is clearly not enough for a car payment and insurance.

What were you're experiences?

Maybe it would have been better to put this in fin aid, but I don't think I'll get many opinions there.
