Hey guys, so I was wondering if anyone else is in the same boat I am in regarding their credit card balance going into med school. I'll be starting this coming fall and with all the secondaries, interviews, and normal day to day living have racked up a couple grand in credit card debt. There's loan debt from undergrad too, but as I'll be deferring that once starting back up I'm not too worried about it. I'm working and trying to pay off what I can, but after I pay my bills at the end of the month I don't have a great deal left to try and pay off what I can. Not to mention paying for background checks, apartment waitlist spots, unexpected car problems, and up coming moving expenses I'm not forseeing any way to pay it off in the next few months. Haha, ok so this has turned into more of a rant than a question, but was just wondering if people had any ways of dealing with this or gone through this while in med school? I have no family who can help me, and if anything have them hitting me up for money as I'm going to be a rich doctor Do you just carry the balance and pay as much as you can each month to keep from ruining your credit?
