Congratulation. When can we expect loans for students from India?

I would not expect any US Federal Loans anytime soon. For those that don't know Congress passed a law that restricted the use of Federal Student loans to offshore schools. The only reason Ross, SGU, and AUC have them is because they were the only one's around grandfathered in. I have not heard of a true viable pathway for US Federal Loans since then. If someone knows please inform me.

Out of curiosity what does this VA Approval mean? To me it sounds as if they will now consider hiring a MD who graduated from SMU to work at their facilities. Is this correct?
