I wish I could give you good news.... but I don't know of any hospitals in St. Louis offering loan help right now. SLUH was the only hospital I knew of offering this option as of last year when I began SLU's accelerated option.
I funded this entire last year with loans. I wasn't worried until all this hiring freeze business. The good news is by the time you graduate, this whole scare will probably be over and hospitals will reinstate their loan forgiveness benefit. Hospitals will realize that without proper staffing, their failure to rescue rates, hospital-acquired infections, and medical errors are only going to increase and they'll hemorrhage money through lawsuits and fines!
SLU does have their own scholarship
they give to accelerated option students if you qualify for it (academic merit + financial need). They gave a lot of us around $6K, so that's $6K you can return to your lender. Don't count on it, though, I don't know if they still plan on being that generous in light of the economy and, I hear your class will be the largest yet. But SLU doesn't seem to be hurting any.
Keep in mind there are many college grads graduating with $70K in student loans. It's kind of a state of existence for many of us. Interest rates are relatively low comparatively speaking....
Best of luck to you!
