    Funding for Canadians going to ASUM

    Advertisements



    Hi all,
    My wife and I were accepted to 3 schools for this september. We're from Canada and I am absolutely amazed at how ridiculously difficult it is to secure funding (from any source) to go to school. ASUM has turned out to be challenging in paticular. We visited AUA in person and another school actually closed. The truth is that ASUM seems the best choice, but wow...funding. We were specifically told by several physician friends that tuition concerns should never stop a candidate from applying. It's the only thing holding us up.

    Can anyone from Canada, particularily Ontario tell us how they succeeded this daunting task?

    Cheers,
    New guy,
    Ontario, Canada

    Hi,

    Not sure if my reply is too late... but I wanted to let you know that banks (RBC, TD Canada Trust, etc...) allow medical students to take out a student line of credit for 150K. If this is not enough, other loans/line of credits can be worked out.

    In addition, OSAP (google the link!) also gives out student loans to those studying overseas.

    Hope that somehow helps!
