Planning to Study Abroad?

The U.S. Department of Education would like to set new rules to make it more difficult for students to receive federal financial aid in order to attend institutions outside the US. It seems most of the rules are in regards to foreign medical schools (for instance, there may be an increased minimum score of 75 % on US medical licensing exam to be even eligible for aid), however there may be more stringent reporting requirements for U.S. institutions as well.

The impetus seems to be decreasing federal funding in smart ways, but of course, this is easier said than done!
