You can only get burned otherwise.

If you think you're :angryfire now, just wait until she gets that job while you're still scrambling for ways to pay for your school...without having to prostitute yourself.
Or think about how you're going to feel when the rug finally does get pulled out from under her (and believe me, eventually it will) and she comes running to you looking for sympathy .
Seriously, this could go in so many horrible directions...what if her husband finds out? I'm assuming he's helping her pay for school - or if nothing else, I'm sure it's a lot easier to pursue a degree when you're married with 2 kids vs. trying to do it as a single mom. Not to mention the fun of having to go through a divorce when you're in school. What if the school finds out and she gets dropped from the program? Yeah, stay away from this girl.

As with so much else, if it's not affecting your own grades/opportunities (you're not also going for that job are you?), then I'd leave it alone.
This sort of stuff tends to blow up all on its own, without any help at all. Tend to your own garden and wait for the 4th of July.
My 2 cents.

This is not deserving of your time. And while the advantages this person is getting in possible preferential treatment are not just, they are reality. You will learn in the medical world that is almost equally important that you are knowledgeable and skilled as it is that you surround yourself with good people and positive things. Dealing with life, illlness, and death are hard enough within themselves, it is important to set yourself up with a great support network and positive things. This is not personally affecting you, so let it go and channel your energy elsewhere.
