Hi, I was hoping that a few members here could clarify the situation with this strange loan program (located in India) that claims to cater financial aid to many schools globally. I had visited their website and noted that under the "Caribbean Section - " the following schools were on the list :
A friend of mine had called up both Saint Matthews and Sint Eustatius to get some detail as to what this loan was about.Code:AUC MUA SGU ROSS MED ROSS VET SABA SPARTAN SGU SAINT MATTHEWS SINT EUSTATIUS
Sint Eustatius had said, they had never heard [until my friend mentioned it] of this loan. The only loan available to us is TERI. If any student tries to request a loan through the Paras group would be denied for Sint Eustatius will not authorize approval.
Saint Matthews initially sent out letters [also noted in the SMU forum] regarding the new Paras Program. Upon calling the school, they said the only loan they have is TERI. They were working on the details with PARAS, and they are aware of it's existence, BUT the financial officer said : they wouldn't advise at the moment to apply to this program. - they left it at that without further details.
This is very very strange. Anyone have any more information regarding this organization? I'm sure the other schools are not in affiliation with Paras either. Seems that a tremendous (probably every single one in each state!!) amount of U.S. schools are listed too!
There are a few posts about Paras scattered around the ValueMD forum, but unfortunately not much has been discussed. I hope that this could be kept in the Main School forum for a few days as the financial aid forum doesn't get many visitors. Thanks for everything!
