A four year degree at a medical school on average costs about a quarter of a million dollars (250,000$). Yet, there are plenty of ways to get this number to the lower side. For instance, you can earn scholarships or financial aid during your application process. Also, you can apply to an in-state university. These are often significant discounts for those who take classes at a state school. For reference, Umass Amherst is close to 50,000$ for out of state but can drop to as low as 20k for people from Massachusetts.
