    I was just wondering, how much do most pod schools give out in scholorships to students? I know it will vary from school to school so what school gives the most? i have not taken the mcat yet but have an overall gpa of 3.8 and was wondering(granted if i get a 25-30 on the mcat) what type of scholorship i could receive?

    well from what i understand, the scholorships usually depend on how good your GPA and scores are.......so since your gpa is good just get a good mcat (above 21) and you should be good. The school i applied to give people with good grades 10 and 12,000 dollars for their first year. If they keep up the good grades they get alot for their 2nd year to......people with lower GPA's got about 3,000 or so..

    CSPM seems to be throwing around the most scholarship money this year. If you have at least a 25 on the MCAT plus I believe a 3.25 GPA or 3.50, they will give you 12.5K over a four year period. One thing to remember are the estimated costs for tuition + living at CSPM is 63K a year

    Scholl offered a half tuition scholarship that only depended on GPA (for me, since I didn't have MCAT at the time). It was only for the 1st year but there are a number of smaller scholarships available for upperclassmen.

    AZPod does not give out many scholarships at all, although there are occasional small ones (~1000) you can win after 2nd year.
