If someone wanted to go beyond a GradPlus loan, would that be possible? Do any companies offer such loans while still not requiring payments while in school? Anyone here ever use one?

Living expenses, travel expenses, book expenses, and even the one time expense of a $2000 laptop computer are included in the cost assessment that GradPlus covers.  You are getting yourself in serious *&^% if you try to take out a loan even bigger than the maximum amount GradPlus allows for and I really doubt any lender will be willing to take on that kind of risk and they certainly wouldn't be willing to do a deferment because it is obviously not for school.

So you've never heard of a 2L/3L hard up enough to need one and be able to get it then?
