    How are students planning on making loan payments after 5th semester?

    Hi everyone,

    I was just wondering how students are planning on making the interest payments of over $1K a month after fifth semester? even with participating in an online masters it still wont be enough. So im taking any suggestions.

    Work + Study for the Step + MBA... not the easiest calculations, but make sure you know what you're getting into...

The idea is to take the MBA during the second two years when you are in dire straights with interest payments. I also figured this with about $1000 per month while on the island for expenses, which is a liberal figure from what I understand. For this I plan to hit up my parents and I have some money saved up for the first year. Then during the first summer break I plan on working to make some money for expenses for the second year. On paper it seems like it can be done for sure. You might need some help from family though.
    I hope the $1000 doesn't include the rent because you are in a big surprise. There are no summer breaks.

    AUA is eventually going to a 2 year basic science program in antigua, though the exact time frame hasn't been determined yet. And since it's not finalized yet, you don't know how long the breaks in between will be. I think with the current semesters you can take a LOA if you want, but those interest payments are still coming in even when you're not in school...You'd have to ask the NY office.
