Not sure if this is the right forum (maybe Allo forum is more appropriate?), so please move if it isn't. I am engaged and have been accepted to several MD schools. I will probably stay in-state, but I am wondering if there is any economic advantage to getting legally married before med school starts (better federal aid, lower rates, more low rate loans available etc). I don't know too much about marriage and tax laws, but neither one of us has income now (she is still in school). State is CA if it matters.
