I got the BOG wavier at my CC, but they don't have a medic program. What can I do?

If you do choose a medic program at a CC. Just reapply for fafsa using that schools fafsa number when you enroll in medic school. Remember you have to reapply for fafsa yearly. I had to apply for fafsa fall sem. To be covered through winter,spring, summer. Then again in spring to cover fall semester of the following year

Yes but that's 2 and a half hours away from LBC
We have one guy in class right now who's commuting from Laguna beach, and several from LA. They drive up on a monday and stay at a hotel with some of the other guys from class during the week.
If you're too attached to staying local, you may continue to have the same problem finding a program.
You've also got Saddleback in Mission viejo and Palomar further south.

For UCLA it's about $17900 if you do the part time/hybrid program. About $12k if you do the "traditional" program as they call it.

here's the breakdown for Sac State's Paramedic Program as of 2014/2015. Keep in mind that the course total (11,700) DOES NOT include what the agency will charge you for interning with their company; IE: Sac City FD charges an additional ~$2500 to intern with them. A smaller company may only charge ~$1000. This program also gives you 30 transferable college credits.

Agencies actually charge students to do internship for them? That's a joke

Mine was $1500
This is the first time I am hearing about this. The only time agencies charge students around here is if you get placed with the fire departments, they will normally charge $5 per day for food and that's it.
