I'm a New Yorker so preferably in the northeast.
Uniformed Serivces University of the Health Sciences, Tuition: $0.00
Not sure what you mean by affordable here. Do you mean lowest tuition? Do you mean who will you come out with the least debt? These numbers often depend on if you do a research project, which provides tuition assistance. Some bigger name schools offer a larger part of tuition in scholarships and grants rather than loans. Other programs offer tuition assistance if you agree to work X number of years in an underserved community or a rural community.
Edit: or as suggested by robizzle above, try your state schools, you've got a bunch!
So glad to live in Texas
I'm not sure this is entirely accurate. It says for Mayo (private) that the tuition for both residents and non-residents is the same when in fact it's not. MN, FL, and AZ residents pay less, I think about $6,500 vs. that ~$20k mark.
where are you coming up with your numbers ($6500)? Do you go to Mayo? According to my MSAR it says it's $23,500 for both res/non-res
Also to the OP, the U of Cali schools have $0.00 in-state tuition, they just have $16,000ish in "fees". Of course nonresidents have a good size tuition plus these $16,000 in fees.
the mayo website....
I think that reduced tuition may be defined as a " after scholarship" price for residents rather than the actual tuition which is listed. Regardless, other than mayo, baylor, and miami, you aren't going to find many private schools that are cheaper for instaters than OOS.
Those are great, thank you very much.
Yeah, I noticed Texas has the best in-state rates.
Can someone tell me more about one's obligations from: Uniformed Serivces University of the Health Sciences?
What about research projects?
I'm looking for total least expenses/debt.
I don't know if Cleveland is "northeast" enough for you, but if so, and if you're interested in doing research, CCLCM gives fantastic financial aid.
I know for the military scholarship, it's 1 year for every year they fund, not including residency. And if you take a civilian residency and spend more than 3 years, you have to spend another year in. The school itself is more aimed towards those that are considering the military for life.
wow, didn't realize how badly Colorado wanted my out of state money!
I wonder if USUHS might be one of the least affordable schools in the long run lol. The 4-8 years (depending on if you do a millitary residency) you'll have to spend in the millitary after graduation might make up for that zero tuition in a big way lol.
I seriously don't get why people would want to go there out of state. It's like $72K per year for tuition alone.
Buy an MSAR
Is there such a thing as an "affordable" med school?
All Cali schools are 0 tution, but the cost of living and expenses still = to about 15 to 20 grand of student loan per year. No doubt that the Cali schools are unbeatable in terms of price and reputation. One of my good friends graduated from UC San Deigo and have nothing but the best thing to say about that school. But he still had >100,000 in debt.
In terms of other great buy and great reputation..... I would have to say either UNC or Umass. These schools take mostly all In Staters... Umass (MD program is 100% in state and UNC is about 96% In state). Tution is like 8000 for Umass and I think about 10-12 grand for UNC. Umass is know for a great primary care school with rapid growth in Research just in the last 5 yrs, UNC is solid all around.
ECU also have good tution.... although does not have the same research reputation as UNC and Umass. Have a good primary care program.
It's worse now. They knocked down the tuition from $63K to $43K (or something close to that).
The catch? Whereas before you could become in state yoru second year, you are now considered OOS for all four years. This has been debated recently, but I called the school and was told very clearly. Bad news.
The one that gives you a full scholarship.
Mayo is pretty cheap relative to other schools too but extremely impossible to get into.
how does this matter if he's from new york, and therefore oos?
The title of your thread is an oxymoron
He said "affordable med school." Teehee.
No one is going to give me a full scholrship; no one is going to give me any. I'll be lucky to get accepted to med school.
Well, if you don't get accepted, you don't have to worry about the bills of it, and if you do, you'll be in the same boat as most of the rest of the doctors in America, not being able to finance their education with anything except loans.
Hee hee.. I've gotcha beat. I'll be paying about 6K this (first) year for tuition and all fees (incl. books), and that amount will go down slightly each year for the three subsequent years, making total school costs (for all four years) around 22K...
