And The AWARD Goes To…
TUFTS University for leading the way with the highest tuition amongst all medical schools in the entire United States. A whopping $51968 per year! Congratulations are in order for being the first institution to cross the 50K barrier! Surely, others will be taking your lead. Honorable mention goes to Colorado for raping their out of state students for tuition.
As you can see this does not include everything else from room, board, health insurance, books, transportation, loan fees, etc. After your four years you will be staring at over 300K in debt!!! And with the loans locked at 7% interest, your debt will be climbing to the tune of 21 thousand smackeroos a year. Don’t call me an alarmist. The numbers are right there before you in black ink.
Year 1: $73,336
Year 2: $73,625
Year 3: $84,451
Year 4: $82,966
Grand Total: $ 314378 (God forbid you have undergrad loans to add!)
The current bleak student loan issue is nothing compared to what lies right down the road. With the economy in the toilet, why is it that tuitions keep spiraling upwards when everything else has come crashing down? Just when you think practicing medicine couldn’t possibly get any worse. It always….well…….just does. Should be really interesting to see all this unfold-Got popcorn?
