Hey guys. Confused, again lol. So I've been having an upward trend and everything in my grades from the last time. Got a 4.0 (finally!!) this semester. ANYWAYS, the school I go to is super expensive. I want to transfer to a public, I'll be going into my 3rd year. But, for the priv school I am in now, I have 4 eboard positions lined up for me next year in really good Science/dental/community service related clubs. Even in the making of starting a club. The public school will be a fresh start. I have no shadowing hours yet because my dental assistant job got taken over by coronavirus before I could start. I'm confused on what to do. Should I just suck it up and stick with taking out $20k loans every year? I dorm for my priv school and will have to dorm for the public school too. By the end I'll be about $80k in debt, not even counting interest. But I'm not sure how much of a difference it would be for an instate public school? I feel like the eboard positions will help a bit with my dental school application. Guidance please! Oh and I plan to take the DAT next spring (2021).
But I'm not sure how much of a difference it would be for an instate public school?
Usually tuition is posted online on the schools' websites.
Dorming in either case is likely similar in cost unless there is a huge COL difference between the areas.
Check whatever public school you're referring to and see their tuition and update how much it will cost.
