Curious to hear from people with med school debt: what is the best way to finance med school? Is taking on student debt a big deal if you get a high-paying job after school? The reason I ask: I paid for my son's BS degree (including housing and meal plans), and he's entering med school soon. He has asked if I will pay anything towards his support in med school. But he worked all through his undergrad degree and saved sine I was paying for the major expenses, so I kind of feel like this is his thing to take on now. AITA?

I know a few people that went to med school and they had the goal to go to med school since undergrad. Both of my friends parents assisted in undergrad, but they had to take loans out for med school. Their housing Wasn’t paid by the parents, but they would cover things like phone bill or car insurance. Just 300ish dollars a month. I don’t think it’s your responsibility to pay for their grad school, just be clear on your expectations.

I don't think you're being unreasonable in expecting your son to pay (at least a portion of) his med school tuition. Can you both maybe come to a compromise where you each pay a percentage (50/50, 25/75)? I think that's more fair and will also start teaching your son some real-life responsibility.

That is totally your call. Obviously, becoming a doctor will land him one of the highest-paid jobs in the country so if it is truly his calling he should go for it. Look into scholarships, employers that might help with tuition repayment, etc.
