Paying for grauate school

  1. Just a quick is everyone paying for grad school? The prices I am seeing for these schools are outrageous!!! I am planning on going to school out of state so there is no way the hospital I work for now is gonna pay for my tuition because I wouldn't be working for them anymore, LOL. I still have 20-something thousand to pay in undergrad loans, so I would like to avoid loans if at all possible.

    Talk to the school about scholarships. Also, if you have. High GPA/GRE score, they will usually give a stipend. I'm planning on going to Baylor's DNP-Nursre Midewife program. Most of my professors went there and they told me there is a stipend. The higher your GPA, the better the stipend. Unfortunately there are not a lot of programs that offer assistance with grad school. If you don't want more loans, you may just have to save up.

    Good luck!

    You can also apply to the National Health Service Corp Scholar program. If accepted, they will pay for your tuition, but then you owe them 2-4 years of service in an underserved area.
