    Loans, etc. since people keep asking

    Advertisements



    People have been asking me about funding lately. I haven't really looked into loans to go to med school outside of federal loans and private grants/scholarships. I am not sure what else is really out there.

    I couldn't receive the grants offered to me because TUSOM does not have Title IV approval yet. This makes it difficult for US citizens to receive federal funding and most grants/loans. HOWEVER, TUSOM offered us a hefty $19,000/semester at a rate of the current index + 3.75% = 8.75% for us.

    The best option for finding out more regarding financing is to contact TUSOM.

    I am not sure what the Canadian students have available.

    They won't get Title IV loans. Only SGU, ROSS AUC (one other?) have these thanks to a grandfather clause in the current bill.

    so if you have a co-signer with 680 are you able to get 19000 loan so you can continue your education? because AUA encountered loan problem. so I'm looking for alternative school so I can continue my education.
