Private student loan for medical school
I'm a non-citizen accepted to a US medical school. I have a US cosigner with good credit.

I was looking for advice regarding private student loans. I have been researching extensively and so far I'm looking at Sallie Mae, wells Fargo, and discover. All offer similar features like no origination fee etc... what other factors should i be considering?

Additionally these places offer choice between variable interest rate and fixed rate. What is the better option? I am expecting about 250-300k in loans by the time I graduate and would start making payments after residency ( approx 3 years after grad).

I really appreciate any advice you can give me.
