I have a little dillemma here. I got accepted to MCW and they do not include a car in your living expenses. Try and tell me who could live without a car. My problem is the car I have now is 10 yrs and is about to die. I need a new car now, but I am afraid to buy one because they won't allow it in my budget. Medical school is stressful enough, I don't want to have to worry about money. MCW says that it is illegal to include car payments or credit card payments in their budgets, but I know a lot of other schools that do. Is anyone else have similar problems? Sorry i am poor and have been working 25-30 hrs a week since I was 16. The lady for financial aid even had the nerve to ask me if I had a rich relative. Any suggestions of comments would be greatly appreciated.
