I am in a similar boat. (Not medical bills, but youthful stupidity.) Basically it's about seeing what schools offer you money, trying to save a lot of money before school, maybe going to a cheaper school (thank God for the UC system!), and in my case, hoping you can juggle jobs during school and maybe get a summer law firm job and sock away some money.
I'm also thinking about, if the right combination of school and scholarship does not come along, and I get into an expensive school I really want to go to, deferring for a year to save more money. And also, wondering if I might be able to take a year off between 1L and 2L if I have enough to get through first year but not second. Would hate to do that but if worse comes to worst... it's tough...
