The purpose of the study was to investigate the relationship of financial aid to the persistence and academic performance of financial aid recipients in a professional school. Receipt of aid did not correlate significantly with graduation rate or class rank. Therefore, financial aid provided capable students, who otherwise could not afford, it the opportunity to attend medical school.
