Since our company was founded our main goal was to help students transition through medical school with success.
(PRWEB) August 15, 2016
It comes as no surprise that medical school is expensive. With roughly 80% of all students owing more than $100,000 by the end of their journey (often not including the undergraduate degree), people are often looking to find quality institutions that are also affordable. That figure is only speculated to increase in time with rising interest rates on student debt. However, there have been a few medical schools that have maintained affordable tuition costs and are regarded highly in the country.
MedicalSchoolsinUSA.com, a company that provides free information to medical students via articles, research, and helpful guides, has compiled a list of the top five most affordable schools in the country. The intent is to help students entering medical school make informed decisions about the institutions they choose. While living at home might seem like a cheaper alternative, some states and schools are worth the move across the state.
The spokesman of MedicalSchoolsinUSA.com, Ben Davidson, released a statement. “Since our company was founded our main goal was to help students transition through medical school with success. Now, we have focused on increasing our site even further by helping students after graduation as well. Tackling student debt and reducing the price tag that comes with becoming a doctor has been our main cause in recent months and we are proud to share our results.”
