I wanted to post this here since you all seem to be out of med school at this point. I am deciding between Northwestern (my number one choice), which will put me in about $250,000 dollars in debt, and UMich, my rather expensive state school. Northwestern is a much better match for me for many reasons, but I want to know if this amount of debt is manageable. Do any of you have similar debt or know of people who have paid it off in ten years?? Do you know of any horror stories?? Is it doable??? Am I crazy for taking it all on to go to the perfect school for me??? Post here or PM me please!!
