great school, great price. ooh and great med school too! i really need to thank my parents for moving here from houston.
plus my dad's work offers an 8,000 dollar scholarship for the first year of college
Athletic scholarships! Got a bachelor's and a master's paid for, can't beat that. I might not be able to walk straight by the time I'm 40, but walking is overrated anywayrambo said:
I must admit my parents are paying... however, I went to my state school for extremely cheap so its only been about 2400 a year. Med school, of course, is a completely different story. Hello debt!TheProwler said:I'm paying for mine right now, and I'm in my second semester of my junior year. It's all been out of MY pocket, but I suspect Daddy is financing a lot of these collegiate endeavors. I'll be in a few g's of debt, but not too much.
Public ... if you go back to school full time you can get deferred? Is it NJCLASS or PHHEA (or whatever the PA side one is ... )PublicEnemy said:i went to a private school for undergrad. i didn't qualify for financial aid, but the last 2 years of school, i had to pay for myself, completely in personal loans. ~$80,000. im already in re-payment and since its not a government loan program, i don't know if i can even get a deferral for med school now...yeah,not sure how this med school thing is going to work out with that.
those people aren't internet nerds posting on a pre-med message boardsuperdevil said:although i personally answered "$0", i'm still a little surprised that so many people chose 0. lots of people at my undergrad (where tuition is only like 6000/yr) have 15-30+ thousand in debt because they paid tuition and had to have a posh apartment to throw parties in. the sad part is, a lot of those people have degrees that won't get them well-compensated jobs (bachelor's in psych, sociology, etc) and they have credit card debt to boot. they'll either end up being broke til they're 45 or filing for bankruptcy. such a shame.
I hear ya, I'm 16k in already with 2 years to gomshheaddoc said:holy moly ... I hope most of you were there on full scholarships or something. I have to pay a TON in undergrad debt. $26K ain't got NOTHING on me
Scholarship is for tuition and fees plus 5000? or scholarship is for tuition plus 5000. There is a subtle difference. The fees may eat up the $5000 if they are not included in the scholarship.ftbstep said:I received a huge merit scholarship that pays for tuition and gives me roughly a 5,000 dollar stipend to live on....I consider myself very lucky!!!
if you took out student loans from a private lender, you can defer them as long as you're enrolled full-time in school. you're not required to make monthly payments (you have to get the school to verify that you're enrolled) but interest will continue to accrue.PublicEnemy said:i went to a private school for undergrad. i didn't qualify for financial aid, but the last 2 years of school, i had to pay for myself, completely in personal loans. ~$80,000. im already in re-payment and since its not a government loan program, i don't know if i can even get a deferral for med school now...yeah,not sure how this med school thing is going to work out with that.
no, I'm pretty sure that there's just a lot of us in state schools, which don't offer those kinds of scholarships.Zondeare said:I'm not really surprised at all with the number of people who got out of undergrad without debt. Most of the people that stick around in pre-med are the ones who had full-tuition or almost full tuition scholarships.
I went to a private school and was given full tuition and studying abroad, and I had excess scholarships to cover the rest. I think it's a fairly common trend here.
