Please Donate!

I need to pay for my schooling so I can go to med school. As my regular readers know, the plan right now is for me to:

  1. Take my MCAT exam (July/August)
  2. Take pre-med classes at Indiana University Kokomo (August-May)
  3. Apply to Med School (August)
  4. Start Med school (August 2012)
  5. Enter the Navy as a doctor.

The Navy starts paying me the moment I start med school, so I can keep working until then, paying our bills out of the money that I make at the hospital.  The only problem is that I won’t be able to work as much overtime, since I will be going to school two days a week.  That, added to the fact that I have to pay $2500 for tuition and books, as well as the MCAT, which costs $235. Add in the med school application fees (usually around $100 per school…I’m picking four) of $400, and I need to raise $3150 for the next two months.

The good news is that I get tuition assistance through my job, but they only pay AFTER I pass the class and turn in a grade report. That means I’ll probably get reimbursed for these fall classes next February, and I can use that money to pay for next semester.

This is where you come in.  I need to meet my budget shortfall which now includes $2500 for this semester’s tuition, fees, and books.  I am applying to all the scholarships I can find, but who knows if any of them will pan out.  That’s why  I have placed a “DONATE” button on the right sidebar, over there——>

All you have to do is click on the donate button, and it takes you to Paypal.com where you can send me any amount of money that you wish.  You do not have to have a paypal account:  any credit card will work, and it’s a secure server.  If you would like, you can consider this a loan, and I will repay you next June when I get my tuition reimbursement for the spring semester. Just drop me an e-mail telling me it’s a “loan til June.” Otherwise, I will consider it a donation.

What’s that you say?  “What if he doesn’t get into med school?”  Well that won’t affect this, because even if I don’t get in, I still get reimbursed by my job.

Please help me make medical school a reality.
