Does anyone out there have experience with the NHSC??? I am thinking of ways to plan to pay off med school debt w/out enlisting in the services. When they say "competitive salary and benefits", what do they mean? I spoke to them today and couldn't get any possible ranges. They say that in their "Loan Repayment Program" they pay upwards of $25 K per year toward your loan debt, but all funds are taxable. What does that translate into when you look at the actual amount you receive to put toward your loans???? The time commitment does not bother me, but the ambiguity in the financial aspects of the program do a bit. If any of you could give any personal experience with them or give other "non-military" loan re-payment programs that are out there, i would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance!!
