Question normal

One thing I'm interested to hear from current students and residents is how much emphasis they put on the price of attendance, including the cost of living in that city, when they chose a medical school. Tuition and cost of living varies tremendously between medical schools, far more than the difference in quality of education, but I don't get the impression that very many students weighed that heavily in their selection process. That might be because students were only accepted into a single school or all schools they were accepted to had similar costs of attendance, I don't know. Did you take price into consideration when you chose your school? How important of a factor was it?
