is anyone as broke as i am?
i am expecting to have very little cash when leaving for school in january, and i am actually planning to arrive 3rd week of december to get settled so i will need something to live off of and from what i have read there are a lot of large one time costs that i will have to pay--apartment deposit, drivers license, internet, phone...---. did anyone take out a loan just to get there and then just pay it off with the student loans that come once school starts (is that even possible?) or is that a bad idea. or could i just pay all that with credit cards and then pay those off.
also, how quick do loans come in...the day school starts if we are lucky?
