...or if you haven't graduated yet, how much do you expect to have.
A lot less than I went into the first semester of dental school!
Yeah, I know, I know, dental school costs ridiculous money.
wow, you 0-9k people are lucky. I had a little more than that..plus tack on the 10,000 I took out to take four graduate classes...
Were did those 0-9 people go to school? They must have stayed with there parents, or got them to pay for school.
I'm guessing 0-9 people either have scholarships, went to their state school, or have a benefactor (ie: Daddy or Grams).
my husband only has 2,500 in loans from undergrad, and that was actually used to pay for applying to dental school. the rest of his school he paid for by working like 90 hours a week during the summers and then having a job during undergrad. His parents didn't pay for any of it.
Parents are helping to pay for undergrad so that once I finish the debt in my name will only be around $12,000, but I'm expected to pay them back and support them once I can.
Not much to accumulate when tuition was only 1200 a semester
Most of the cost comes from living expenses, I had a full tuition scholarship, but still came out with plenty of debt.
I don't owe anything for undergrad because I went to a public university instead of Wake Forest. It's possible if you pick a state school.
Got mine down from $25K to $15K and that was WITH a large athletic scholarship.
I have $0-9K because I worked all through school and attended community college and a state university. It's possible but not easy.
Mine definitely added up. Out-of-state for 4.5 years with no scholarships. Ouch. I have to say though, I don't regret it!
I'm going to a state school which is relatively cheap. My parents are paying for my undergrad schooling, but I'll be on my own for dental school.
Needless to say, I've started saving.
zero....academic scholarship and can manage to work enough to pay off the rest with some help from parents
I have 0 debt.
My parents don't help me at all.
I work 30hours a week. Plus I am on full tuition scholarship, and I receive full SMART and PELL grants (about 4k per semester).
I could not work and break even, but I chose to live in a little nicer place and I am saving for my application process etc..
Dental school = LOANS! Yeah, not too excited about that one.
I have 12k. Worked 40+ hours for my first two years. Its tought but you learn alot about time management which will be important for those first two years of dental school
