Notes:
1. Control: 5 = state, 1 = independent or private
2. Degree: B = bachelors, M = masters, F = first professional, D = doctorate
3. Nonresident scholarships for the first year are often not extended.
4. In state universities make more sense unless one has exceptional national exam scores 
       and excellent science and math grades in high school.
5. Nonresidents usually pay about 2 to 3 times what residents pay at state schools. 
       Becoming a resident usually requires working there a year.
6. From Peterson's College Database and Peterson's Guide.
7. Washington, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho are in the WAMI medical program.
