I'm gonna be down at Santa Clara for my first year come august. Anyone else out there gearing up for a fantastic year? I'm looking for housing right now, and also trying to get my loan situation straight. I'm hoping some people will start posting here.

I asked my school to increase my COA, and they looked at me like i was an alien from War of the Worlds. If you can get it without their approval, then do it, but be careful cause i heard that they can decrease your other loans/fin aid if they find out.

Yes, she just recently consolodated her credit cards/other loans. I will look at Key Bank. My credit is pretty bad, but i decided to go anyway cause i don't think i could fix it in one year(if i had deffered). I'm going to Santa Clara, but the private loans are not really that much, around 13K. Does it have anything to do with the Federal loans? I mean, do i have to apply for the federal Stafford loans BEFORE i try to get the private loans? I didn't think about that before, but nothing i read said that.

keep em coming people, thanks

Hey ppl. I applied for my school loans with a cosigner who has pretty good credit, but was denied at both access group and citibank, both online. Does anyone have any suggestions on what i should do? I obviously won't be able to contact my school fin aid office for a couple days, but i want to get on this now. If anyone knows a lender that is a little easier to get some  money from, it would greatly been appreciated.

I will start pulling all of my long, beautiful hair out in a few days if this doesn't get resolved. :'(

Sup ppl. I have asked my school for  a small loan increase to help with my move across the country and the cost of a laptop computer among other things. I asked for approx. 4,200 bucks extra.

Has anyone tried to do the same before, and if so, what were the results? I know each school is different, but i'd like to know if this is a common request and the trend. I know that some schools will increase the COA to allow for a computer, but my school makes no mention of that in their info/website, even though they are pushing for us to buy Dell and Apple computers hard.

Any comments would be well appreciated.
