    Financial aid for international student

    Hello everyone,

    I just received an acceptance letter from SGU for entry in January 2013. I am really excited to go there despite all the drawbacks of Carib med schools. The only thing that worries me now is the incredibly expensive tuition fee! I just calculated that a four year MD program would cost me almost 260000 USD and that's on schooling alone.. I am hoping to get the LOE scholarship which could cut down about one third of it. But there's still around 173000 USD left.. being an international student means I am not eligible for any federal/student loans. I just confirmed with SGU people too that international students are no longer eligible for any US based loans, even with a US citizen co signer. Now i'm really hopeless as I couldnt seem to find any other options. Do you guys have any idea on any loans available for international students? Becoming a doctor has been my dream and I really want to get into SGU. Any info/advice would be highly appreciated!
    Thank you in advance

    Uh, I think you would get a better answer from the school then you could here about something like that.
