So of course like the many other students on this forum I see NU as my first choice college. Unfortunately my parents are unable to contribute at all in paying for college, and I received very little financial aid. Meaning I'll have to take out private loans. I am planning to graduate in 4 yrs so hypothetically that's 50k per semester meaning 200 k in private loans. Then I hope to enter Med School which could mean another 200k. So I am walking out of all my schooling with 400k debt. Is that worth it? I could always go to a college like Stony Brook pay about 40k for schooling. But I hated Stony Brook when I visited and couldn't really see me enjoying it there. I mean I know if I go to NU I'll be happy, but I am worried with being overwhelmed with debt. I know many other doctors who racked up that much debt and told me it wasn't a problem for them, but it still worries me a little. Anyone have any thoughts on that?
