How do you med students pay for school?

Looking at U.S. News med school info, I found a huge discrepancy (in some cases 50% or more) between the costs of med school and average indebtedness of graduates. While most of the top schools cost more than $50,000 a year, many schools graduate students with around $100,000 in debt. Where does that extra $100,000 come from? I just didn't think students had much time for jobs.

People keep telling me not to worry about the money, but I just can't get over this discrepancy.

    Loans, grants, scholarships, parents, family members. If you were to factor out everyone graduating with less than 25k in debt (meaning those who had full scholarships or had high income families) the average debt is probably a lot higher for most people.
