I'm starting my CRNA program next month. After crunching the numbers, it doesn't seem like we were awarded enough financial aid to live on. I've never used aid before, so this is a first and a bit scary. Anyone have any advice about financial aid? Anyone take out or explore private loans? Anyone else feel like it's not enough to live on? My program is in Miami, and it seems as though we are only allotted about $1600 a month to live on in Miami. With rent costing about $1000/month, how does the remaining $600 cover food, health insurance, phone, transportation, gas, electric, etc. Anyone else's aid package more generous?
Any insight or advice is appreciated! Thanks!
