…the school will waive tuition for its first 5 classes, allowing incoming students to fully focus on their studies…
I still can’t believe Kaiser Permanente ‘s School of Medicine is waiving tuition for their first 5 classes. It’s just mind blowing. This is the kind of motivation needed where financial boundaries are lifted and are not an obstacle. All my respect for KP.
