hey correct if i'm wrong... so when it comes to financing med school, do students turn to private loans if the federal and institutional loans aren't enough to cover all the expenses? if so, what private loans are you all looking into? and how do we know if we need private loans if we don't know how much federal loans we're getting? all these med schools are asking for master promissory notes now for first-time loaners, but don't we get those AFTER we the govt. figures out our aid? help! i'm confused!
