    You will get all the money you need and then some. Lenders love, love, love to give money to medical students--we are a low risk investment--they know we'll be able (and likely) to pay it back.

    I am "older" and had some little scars on my credit (mostly due to the evil ex, but that's another story)...but I got the full amount with no problem.

    Unless you are currently in default on student loans or have a bankruptcy in your recent past, you will be FINE.

    Jump in now while you can still get those great 3% rates! (Mine is actually 2.85%! Unbelievable...)

    I think all of us tend to worry about these things, I know that this is also my biggest fear. I have three kids to think of. I think everything will work itself out in the end. Good Luck!
