Browsing the Web today, I came across several tuition stats for the UC schools. Annual tuition for 2001-2002 ranged from $5500 to $11000. I was unable to confirm numbers from most of the schools websites, but UCSD lists annual fees for CA residents as $5509.50! I had no idea the UC's were so inexpensive--just another reason why they're so popular, I guess. Wow, and I thought I'd be graduating with 150k of debt! A debt load of less than 30k for a med school education is an unreal bargain.
