I suggest keeping it and putting it in a high yield on-line bank like ING Direct. It's good to have that extra money for emergencies like Dr. bills, car repairs, ect. What's nice about the high yield accounts is that many get a 5% return. After three years of college, you might have enough principal to use the interest to pay back your student loans.Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but how in the world would you be making enough at 5.0% interest to "use the interest to pay" off a loan at 6.8%?
I hate TransUnion. I once signed up for a free 3-bureau credit monitoring service because it was free for a year, and EVERY MONTH the company called to say TransUnion was blocking the report. I called TransUnion a few times, waited on hold for hours, only to be told there was nothing wrong and they weren't holding it.Should I be concerned that Transunion won't give me a credit score because they think I'm deceased? And that the deceased me owes $1200 on an old credit card?
So the dispute investigation I requested from Transunion is complete. The results? "No change." They've concluded that I am in fact dead and owe a lot of money. Thanks oodles for your competence, Transunion.
The students and the administration have a reputation for snobbery, elitism, and competitiveness that is well-earned (though certainly not by all). There are some good people there... a girl named Lily that used to be around here is proof enough of that. And I did meet the occasional undergrad that wasn't a tool.I'd take the job, do GULC PT, and then switch to FT if you don't want to keep the job. Might as well lower your bills while you're PT.
I really dislike Georgetown anything, but it's hard to turn down a better-ranked school.
Thanks for the reply. 2 Questions:
1. Would your analysis change if I decided not to work at all? Would that be a huge problem w/ OCI (as some claim) or would most firms not care (as other claim)?
2. Out of curiosity, what don't you like about GULC (other than the pt program)?
