    My guess is you wont own anything. At least all the saba students that I know don't own anything. Now, you will owe tons.

    I had a family, wife and kids with me most of the time, so had to have big houses, expensive travel tickets, etc. Took out maximum amount of loan I could every semester. Ended up with $205,000 in med school loans. Still less than many US med school students build up. That is probably the worst case scenario for most everyone going to Saba, single students shouldn't come near that.

    does that amount include the interests? or just the principle?

    Wolfvgang22,

    Congrats on reaching residency! I'm hoping to go to Saba, and would also be there with a wife and 2 kids. Any chance you would be willing to answer some questions regarding studies/island life/living expenses with wife and 2 kids?

    Thanks!
