With regards to the parents: it is my decision to not involve them, for similar reasons as MOTO, with the exception of them expecting me to stand on my own two feet. They would like it but i don't think they expect it.

i emailed NYU a few days ago about the GSLP ... waiting on their reply.

my parents are as helpful as can be and would undoubtedly put up their home to help me. But, I am independent now, have been for a while, and don't really want to be concerned that some sort of accident befalling me would, as well as devestating them, put the 'rents in a awkward financial situation. Of course, I guess I could take out accident insurance. Maybe that would alleviate my fears.

Regardless, loans for school need to be based on the school to be attended - I should be able to get loans to cover my tuition.

I will post whatever I find, doing upon others as I would have them do upon me. Is that even in the bible?

a guess: for ontario schools, about a week after April 3rd, since April 3rd is when decisions need to be made available to OLSAS. Maybe 2 weeks. possibly 3.

hey MotO (good acronym)!,

like I said, the man who rejected the big loan suggested that the smaller loan would be more likely - they have a professional student loan program that maxes at $55,000 for law students - but I decided not to apply right then because, frankly, it just ain't enough at the moment.

So, it was suggested that I would got it, but I have not yet gotten it, and I have been applying without any hope of parental support.

I like telling the truth. I ostensibly enjoy technicalities, but they can so quickly backfire. Really I would prefer that the banks realise that some law schools offer prospects, at least financially, similar to medical schools. Maybe NYU will have some good ideas ...

I applied for ~$150,000 (what I would probably need!) over the phone attempting to convince them of NYU's job placement and that was rejected. The man who phoned me suggested that I would be much more likely to get the $55,000 which, minus my student debt, would come to ~$30,000. This is, as far as I am aware (having not actually gotten the loan), based on no cosigner. He also suggested that I could try and get a cosigner and reapply for the larger amount, but I am loathe to do this.

I could do multiple loaners. I wonder if banks have anyway of checking this.

sans parental support (in terms of putting the house up as security), RBC is royally unhelpful. ~$30,000 max after deduction of current student loans. Even after name dropping with the best of them.

hmph. need new options.

eeek! just went through the preliminary loan application at RBC. Initially they said I could get a max of $30,000 ($55,000 - existing student loans)! I argued and they said they would apply for a higher amount. Now we wait until monday. Oh to be a medical student with their $150,000 limit.

Anyway, I'll advise on how the app went come monday.
