Depends on the state...big time, also on your income. Our cut off for subsidies was $74k for me, wife and son. Me 49, wife 51, son 15. With subsidies we paid $700/month. $15,000 family deductible, $7800 individual HMO. Or as we referred to it, a steaming pile of horseshit. Without subsidies it would of been $2100/month.......
Is it any wonder Texas is the most uninsured state in the union?
Well, we were told during the orientation that it should take at least 3 weeks to hear back. They're probably running a background check and verifying all of your paperwork before they call you. I'm sure you'll get the good word soon!
As for me, I'm trying to keep the faith and stay positive.
I would say that is certainly the point for the most part based on how they offer seats in each class. They do throw that awkward question at you to see how you react but otherwise the interview process is a short snapshot into what you can expect from the program. Hopefully you got that sense of what it'll be like on your interview.
