So my only source of income during med school has been public loans disbursed at the beginning of the semester. Due to having to still pay off pre-med school expenses along with a couple unplanned large expenses this semester, my bank account is dwindling quickly. Its getting to the point I'm wondering how to cover rent and living expenses, let alone pay to schedule the two boards when it opens up in December. I talked to my Fin Aid department and since I took out the full COA, they are unable to certify any loans from the major private loan companies. I'm also fully independent and my parents are unable to help. Does anybody know of any loans that would be ideal for this situation?
