 Hey everyone. My credit isnt that good, but I need to get loans for law school this year. I have a cosigner with awesome credit that is willing to sign for me. I did some research and I know that I need to go through a lender that allows for the borrower(me) and the cosigner to apply at the same time. [lenders like citibank,nallie mae allow that; access group doesnt]. I am still worried that I may not get the loans. Did anyone have a situation like that or similar, and if so can anyone for any reason recommend a lender that will be more lenient with such a situation.

Your best bet is to go with your co-signer's banking institution.  If the co-signer has equity in their home, you can get a real low rate.  However, I would not recommend mortgaging a home to pay for law school.

I'm in the exact same boat.  I got my loan through Nellie Mae with no problems once I added my father as a co-signer (and he's retired).  You shouldn't have any trouble.
