'Mon the Biffy!
How much will you have in your account when you start uni
earn money, live within your means & budget is what it takes..
I worked near full time hours while in upper school, suffice to say I don't plan to be getting into debt til at least the clinical years
no student loan? impressive. i like the idea of kepeing my savings saved too much..
Edit: and TOYL, my employment was for a gynaecologist. Very un-entertaining

Oh yes, I remember your post about that. Air conditioning seemed to come up as a prime concern
For those considering not doing so, ALWAYS take out the full student loan. If you don't need it, put it in an interest-paying account, as you'll earn more interest on it than you pay.
From the age of 16, i saved my money in an isa. I've put in the full amount for a year and a bit so i have some savings which i plan to use when i can't work because the course gets too hectic. I'm lucky i get 3 years of normal uni holidays and then 3 years of reduced ones on my medical degree so during the summer i'll probably work full time for eight weeks which should add to what i already have. Despite all this, my loan doesn't cover everything. My mum couldn't afford to give me anything towards uni and i give her and my sister money to help them out.
i think i had just under £1000
