In recognition of National Financial Aid Awareness month, I’ve asked two of my friends in financial aid to come on the show to discuss financial aid-related topics primarily discussing how you pay for medical school.  We also discuss topics such as need-based aid, loans, scholarships, and the importance of financial literacy and budgeting. We also spend a bit of time breaking down what the term “Cost of Attendance” means and why it is an important component of this process.
