    Loans available for SGU

    Advertisements



    I have read where each school has different loan options available. What all options are available for SGU?
    I am getting worried, not because I fear I won't be admitted, althought with only a 3.2 gpa and 23 MCAT, I know it's not a given. I worry that I won't be able to get loans to pay for school. My credit is below average at around a 615-620. I have no bankruptcies, but 2 cases of collection agencies a couple of years ago. Therefore, private loans would be hard to get, unless I can find a co-signer.
    Anyone else with not so perfect credit able to find loans to pay for medical school at SGU?

    Since I'm going to the vet school, I really only had one option which is Ed-Invest. With either school, med or vet, you need a 650. Your credit score isn't that bad, if you have any balances on your c-cards pay them off, that should help (about 30 percent of score). Then try disputing the collection agency reports or make sure they at least show up as paid. Dispute anything else negative like late payments. I had two collections as well, got them erased by asking the collection agency to erase them after I paid them and told them it the account was opened withou my auth.
    The way we humans treat animals and other fellow earthlings says a lot about the society we live in: "It's a matter of taking the side of the weak against the strong, something the best people have always done."

    There are a few different loan options available. Among the more frequently used:

    Ed-Invest http://www.ed-invest.com
    TERI http://www.teri.org
    KeyBank Medachiever http://www.key.com

    And of course, Federal Staffords.

    at key.com for the medachiever loan it says the loans are available for accredited non-profit schools, yet in the school list it lists SGU under NY. Is key's medachiever still available for SGU? and is it a better option than ed-invest? I didn't see a 3% fee or similar off the top of the loan on the website like ed-invest has.

    guys if you really need help, you can call bayshore, altho most of them will tell you to go with ed-invest.

    or check out the financial aid forum...

    Check with Key directly, but I believe they have a new policy that disapproves all Caribbean schools except for the ones with Federal Staffords (SGU, Ross, AUC)
