    For medical students who have a car or who bought the car with student loan,

    is it possible to buy a car with student loan?
    was it really hard to buy a car with loan because of student status and no income?

    student loans count as income. I had my car before medical school, but if tehy give you a hard time, get a parent or spouse or other family member that REALLY trusts you and that YOU TRUST to co-sign for you.
     
  4. I drove an old car in med school, then moved for residency, sold my previous car and financed another used one...loans are being deferred right now.
