A co-signer on a private loan has nothing to do with EFC. Most likely your law school won't even know if you have one.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: anyone going to a school they barely considered when they applied?« on: April 14, 2006, 11:37:40 PM »
Yup, BU. I only wasn't considering it seriously because I thought maybe I'd want a big change and leave Boston. But they offered me a scholarship I couldn't refuse. Plus, i think law school will be enough of a change anyways.

One thing about the Grad PLUS loan as of now: it will not have a grace period after you graduate. So it might not be the best option for that reason. FWIW. Hopefully, the feds will come out with better guidelines soon!
Hi, I work in financial aid and have seen this comment code pop up. Most likely, because of the consolidation, NSLDS is double counting your loans (i.e., its counting the individual loans AND the consolidation loan.) This is actually very common. I would pull your NSLDS report (www.nslds.ed.gov) and check this. Then call all the schools. This shouldn't be too hard to resolve if that is what is causing it.
If, on the other hand you are over the ugrad aggregate (which it doesn't sound like b/c you were aware of how close you were), you will have to pay it down unfortunately. Feel free to pm me with any other questions!
I agree, 2Legit. I've been saying for weeks that I wished they'd just reject me already (although I did feel a little let down when I opened the letter.) But it's over now! I have one more admitted student day but I'm about 90% sure I'll be Cornell (unless BU's admitted student day blows me away!) And you have Michigan!
