I'm just wondering what the chance is that I'll receive need-based financial aid. I've gotten into some schools that I really like but they're privates and some of the most expensive schools in country. I haven't gotten into any state (public) schools. My parents are in the ~$150k (maybe a little over) income bracket, but I still have a sibling in college. They live in an area with a high cost of living and have many expenses including a mortgage and they will not able to support me at all in med school. The budget for the schools I've been accepted to exceeds $70k/year. I want to do primary care (esp FM), but I feel like I'll be in debt for the rest of my life!
