I think regular people truly don't recognize how much debt people get into during medical training.
For example, the tuition at Case Western Med School last year was $51,450.
That's before you buy one book, put a roof over your head, or crack open even one package of ramen.
But that's a swanky private school. Thrifty students go to state schools, like Ohio State, where the tuition is...
(Actually, there's a great page on the Ohio State website on how students saved money. My favorite one suggests living off free samples from Walmart. Although I think I had some better ideas.)
How much debt did you acquire during medical training?
