teenyfish Posted November 18, 2015 Share Posted November 18, 2015 I'll be applying to PA schools this spring and I'm having a lot of anxiety over the amount I'll owe once I'm done. I'm from the NE, and a state that does not have an instate program. I have about 100k in undergrad debt (nuts, I know). My parents are going to help me with half of that, but I'm not going to bank on that 100%. I'm applying to programs near where my parents live so I'll be able to live with them while I'm in school. Most programs up here run 80k for tuition alone, putting me at around 180k - 200k in loans once I'm done. I've been working with a recruiter to apply to HSCP but I'm not 100% sure I'll be eligible due to a potential medical DQ. I'm trying to be as practical as I can about PA school finance-wise, but I'm still nervous about the insane amount of debt I'll accumulate. Am I setting myself up for financial hardship later on? I can't really see myself doing anything else for a career but I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around this much debt that will follow me around for years and years.
