Bank One Education One Loans
« on: June 12, 2005, 09:05:18 PM »
Does anyone have any experiences to share or comments on the Bank One Education One student loans?  I am apprehensive about taking on more loans, especially private ones, but I am taking classes this summer and doing an externship and I can already tell that I am not going to have enough money to get through until the fall semester starts.  Getting a job is out as I will only have 2 weeks free after I finish my externship before I start another class, which is 1.5 weeks long, and then after that only about 2.5 weeks before fall semester starts.  I think I would only need to borrow about $2,000.

I have Bank One loans and don't have any complaints so far...but I haven't started paying them back yet. :) Be careful not to take too much out along the way.  I had to have a co-signer for the summer b/c I've had to take out a ton of loans for school (but I'm almost done, :)).  If I can offer any more help, let me know.

So you didn't need a co-signor for any of the other loans and then this time they asked for one?  Did you have undergrad loans too?

I've had to take out loans for pretty much all of law school so you can imagine the amount racks up pretty fast. I have Stafford loans and private loans to cover what Stafford doesn't.  So, since I have a sizeable amount of private loan debt now, I guess they thought I needed a co-signer.  I wouldn't think you'd have a problem with $2000 but I also don't know your credit history. :)  My amount was around $12,000.
