Here's another question I have re GradPLUS loans:
So I've qualified for this loan, effectively meaning that a lender will cover my school's entire estimated budget (less grants, staffords, etc., etc.).
My question is that I think the school's estimated budget is a little bit larger than I actually need. I can easily lower the number, but I'm afraid that if I miss something in factoring my living expenses for 9 months into the future that I could be left eating cold beans out of a can.
As of right now my inclination is to just run w/ the estimated budget because I'm a 0L and don't know how my lifestyle will change come law school, then come the summer b/t 1L and 2L I can make a more accurate decision in deciding my FinAid for next year.
Any advice/comments are welcome.
