Hi all,

I am an incoming medical student in a bit of a sticky situation. I originally had the impression that with parental help I would be able to avoid taking out loans for medical school; however, they shared with me today that this may not the case anymore (lord knows why they won't be up front with me about this....anyways).

Anyways, my dad has been very insistent on me looking at both government and private loans. I filled out the FAFSA a couple of days ago but I fear it may be too late to receive aid in time. Is this true, and if so, do I need to start seeking private loans? This is at an MD program which offers aid by the way, so it's not like the federal loans are out of the question. Just not really sure what to do here and it's just another thing I have to deal with before classes start in August.

Get in touch with their financial aid office once you have filed the FAFSA, they will help you get things set up for a federal loan.
