Hi I have a pretty big question. I have been accepted at University of Oxford in England for a 4-Year Masters Program in Biochemistry. However as an international student I would have to foot the entire ~25000 pound(50kish) per year in debt. I will also be attending Medical School afterwards and so will have that to worry about too. My question is if I attend oxford, do well and get good mcat scores, and then assuming i get a full ride to a half decent med school will that about $200,000 debt be manageable when i get out of school? I have also been accepted to UofM Ann arbor where my costs would be about $25k per year. Would doing well at u of m and the same mcat scores get me as good offers from med schools, because from U fM ill only get a bachelors instead of the masters? Med schools are about 40-50k per year now, right?
I know UofM is a great school but really I have always dreamed of Oxford and now that i am accepted i am trying to find ways to fund it. Does anyone know of any funding/scholarships i could get for these studies that would at least partially cover this debt? I have heard that its very uncommon to get full rides to med school but i do know someone personally who did it and so dont tell me its impossible, anyone have some genuine feedback?
Thanks and really any advise you can give me is greatly appreciated.
