Hi All, How does one most effectively finance Dental school expenses (tuition+living). From what I have read so far it seems that people are taking out LOCs. Although banks generally offer lower rates on LOCs vs traditional loans, I still feel that it may be very difficult to pay off the ever-increasing monhtly compounded interest. Are there other forms of financial aid that one can apply to (e.g. government loans/bursaries)? Any advice is appreciated
Just curious what people's thoughts would be on living at home vs. renting, if one was attending medical school in their hometown. At present, I would be inclined to rent (single apartment) for the pre-clerkship years (1 & 2) since I would want to A.) be able to totally focus on my studies and B.) be totally immersed and involved with my class/classmates/med school experience. Does that make sense? Any pros/cons? I think I would then consider living at home during years 3 and 4 when A.) I need more moral support/encouragment (haha) B.) won't have as heavy "classroom learning" and C.) may be travelling for rotations/electives/interviews anyway Can anyone comment on my train of thought or offer their own experience/ideas? Thanks for any comments!
