Hi Folks, I have $25k in student loans from a previous schooling stint. Would I need to get these paid off before I can apply for med school loans? Thanks!
Short answer - no. Your loans will be put in deferment while you are back in school at least half-time pursuing pre-reqs or med school. Many med students have far more than $25K in undergrad loans.

Thank you for making me smile with relief; I didn't want to be the only one in that situation (course, I still need to get to med school)
From someone still paying on law school loans – I hope not.
