    I am currently applying for schools and a huge deciding factor is tuition, I would like to go out of state but out-of-state tuition seems pretty high I was wondering if many students switch to in-state tuition after one year or if scholarships are common for pharmD programs. Also should I just ignore tuition since I will (hopefully) be making enough to pay off my student loan debt right out of school? I already have loans from undergrad keep in mind.

    1) Some universities (not all) allow in-state tuition rate after 1 year. Call each university and ask.

    2) Scholarships are common, but not enough to off-set out of state tuition cost(s).

    3) You should not ignore tuition because you are competing in a saturated market. Even the most aggressive people take 3-4 years to pay them off but the strong assumption is job availability. Hence, you vs. “everyone else” willing to work for less just to utilize the pharmD.

    saturation is real, figure out how to set yourself apart and alleviate debt. Best of luck

    Try to get residency in the state you want to go to school in. This takes about a year but make sure with the schools you want to go to. Out of state tuition is not worth imo especially since you already have loans...

    Try To get The Residency of that country where you want to go. If you go to other state you have to arrange lot of things like home, Food etc. Also there are so many other issue related to state and society. I think you should continue your study on your state because you already have loan so it may be more difficlt in case of change state.
