i was wondering what my options for supporting myself during med school are (yes Fix-it-Man, i admit i am pre-med. however i don't mean to intrude upon your designated "current med student" space. i only wish to gain some of your wisdom). if most schools expect you to not work, how do you pay for tuition & fees, housing, books & supplies, food, the occasional pair of helmet lang open toe stillettos, etc. loans? grants? scholarships? and is that enough to cover your cost of living? i won't have any financial support from my family. my boyfriend and i were hoping to move in together at the end of my senior year and i just want to know if i'll financially be able to do that. (can a person live completely on loans?) thanks for your help.
