As someone pursuing a medical degree, I knew going in I’d be in debt until I’m dead. The idea of having mountains of paperwork, lab write ups, and unknown human bile all over me didn’t scare me, but the thought of trying to figure out how to start student loans did. Luckily, my credit union, ARCFCU, was so helpful in walking me through each step. Even if I called five times in a row (sorry Denise!) they were so helpful in getting me the money I need in a simple manner. Although I’m just scratching the surface of my education helping me in my career, I’ve already gained new knowledge on how the world works at a molecular level.
