Have any transfer applicants gone decision? trasferapps database shows many '07 admits around April 1.
Have you tried craigslist?
pretty sure theres a 2% originators fee on that. complete bs that they can take your money before you even get it. Why should you have to pay back, and pay interest on money you never got. I'd go with access or salliemae.
i went to undergrad in nj and had a bunch of njclass and gradplus loans. i don't know much about the gradplus because i didn't have much with them, and once i consolidated i didn't have to worry at all. njclass is a private company, so consolidation with them was a pain and i eventually just decided to keep them seperated (now i have two payments, one for njclass and one for everything else). but, they are really lenient with everything. the rates are fixed, and if you miss a payment, and i often did, they don't bug you much at all and they won't report you. i was six months late once because i thought i had paid but i actually hadn't, and finally somebody called me and was like 'we are going to have to report this to a creditor unless you pay, but no worries, we'll give you 6 weeks to get the money together'. i appreciated that. one problem i had is that they won't call until it's really late, and they don't email. so in college when i was changing where i lived every year i missed a lot of notices. anyway, that was more my fault than theirs. overall i was/am pretty happy with them.
jmart nearby areas i was looking at like 500 to 600 with 1 roommate.

Here is a blog devoted to Seton Hall's poor career prospects. http://bigdebtsmalllaw.blogspot.com . Apparently someone (Seton Hall?) asked blogspot to take it down.
