So if my out of state tuition for vet school is $44,000 a year, what would you suggest is the best way to pay for this? I qualify for 8,500 subsidized stafford loans and 12,000 unsubsidized stafford loans = $20,500, still leaving me around 35,000 needed to pay for the other half of the tuition plus living expenses?! Would you recommend Gradplus loans at a 7.9% interest? Or is there a better private loan company out there I should look into. What are you guys planning on doing, or current students, what did/do you do?
