Well, I just spoke with my FA director, and she was of no help. When I explained to her about my situation, her reply was that the alternative loan is the last resort for students, and that students always found ways to get it. When I asked her if she could point me to any lender that could help me, she said that the lenders don't disclose the type of information needed for her to help students. It was obvious that other students have asked her similar questions before, and I am pretty sure that she told them what she told me. FA director with years under her belt, and yet can not offer me any type of advice. Anyways, I submitted on-line dispute with transunion regarding my forbearance, so hopefully that will be corrected ASAP. I called my servicer and they are still processing the correction, and the rep I spoke with said that it should be corrected by the end of the week, at which time they will notify the credit reporting agencies. So, as much as I would like to apply to all the lenders out there, especially considering that I am on a time crunch, I am going to wait for about a week for my credit to be fixed.
Ruskiegirl - I really appreciate your effort to help me.
Burning Sands - I keep thinking to myself that we can't possibly the first ones to encounter this type of problem, and am wondering how others resolved this issue. There has to be some way to get the private loan.
