Didn't your school give you a financial aid packet at your interview? Most likely its going to be a mix a subsidized stafford, unsubsidized stafford, and grad plus loans. If you need more you'll need to get a private loan. There's also the HPSP and NHSC service scholarships etc.

first thing is first...do your FAFSA when the time comes

the school will help you apply for the Stafford Unsub. Loans which equates to $42,000 per year for 4 years. This doesn't cover the full cost. You need to go out and apply for a Grad Plus Loan which covers the COA (Cost of Attendance minus any other loans/scholarships/etc)

For example your COA is $100,000 a year and you received $42,000 in Stafford Loans. Therefore your Grad Plus Loan would be $58,000. If you need more money on this, then you have to apply for Private Loans from banks (you will only need extra money if you have a family and your spouse isnt working)

Or, you can choose the military route, but do not do it just for the money.

Good Luck

100k a year. The only school to fit that bill has got to be NYU. Am I right? :cool:

sorry if this sounds like a dumb question but do we pay every semester or pay for the entire year all at once?

You pay each semester. You get your student loans usually 2 a year though, so make sure that you have a budget set up or at the end of the semester you might not have enough to cover what you are wanting to do.

Amen to this. lol. I need to look into a private loan, do you recommend certain banks over others?

stripping...jk.

I'm hoping to get some scholarship money coming in. Check with any clubs and organizations in your hometown because I know that several in the town that I'm from have scholarships set up for students entering into health professions.
