    Currently, there doesn't seem to be much information available. I was told the other day that more information will be released in the next few weeks. Hopefully someone will post here when they hear the details...

    I dont want to copy and paste the email I got for confidentiality reasons, but it basically said that they are going to offer a program, and they are trying to work out deals with other lenders to get the students here covered. She made it seem like there was nothing to worry about, we woudln't need a cosigner, and mentioned something about 'people that are eligible'. I wrote a followup email to figure out what that means, but i'm guessing it means you tried alternative routes first and have some kind of a credit rating (no bankrupties, nothing REALLY low, ect.).

    I'll let ya know.

    Thanks Alz and Mike77 for the update. They're cutting it close...Hopefully they're not just messing with us and giving us a run around.
