Has anyone applied for the Grad Plus loan yet?  I need it for the rest that I owe after the $18,500 Stafford Loan.  If you are applying for Grad Plus, will you go through Widener's lender, or find your own?

I applied for GradPLUS yesterday and yes I went through Widener's lender.  I figured since I went through Widener for the Stafford and I might as well do the same for the GradPLUS so it will be easier to follow.  On another topic, does anyone have nay clue how much a meal costs at the Barrister's Club?

For any NJ residents, check out the NJ Class Loan.  It's a Plus loan administered by New Jersey.  Pretty decent rates.

Yea, right after (and I mean literally right after) I applied through Widener I stumbled upon the NJ Class Loan information and went, "son of a female dog."

The only way I found out about it was through a friend that's using it to go to Quinnipiac Law School.  Then, I saw it on the Widener web site after I applied for it.

the lady in the financial aid office explained it to me and if i'm not mistaken the budget is what you are allowed totat, between grad plus, scholarship, grant, stafford and/or unsubed federal loans.  She broke it all down to me so it's the 44k minue your expected family contribution.  But what I don't understand fully is why the scholarship is listed as part of our budget, that in my opinion shoud be exlcuded.

Yeah, your budget is the standard number used to calculate the maximum amount it will cost you to go to Widener Law.  You take this number, subtract expected family contribution, subtract scholarships, subtract federal aid, and you are left wiht some amount.  This amount is the maximum amount that Widener will certify your Grad Plus loan or other student loans.  You do have the option of appealing this budget number, however I think that you would need some dire circumstances for them to bump you up.

Hope this helps.
