Of course it is.  It's just a huge pain in the ass.

These schools had better hurry up. I need at least some name to negotiate my deal.

I just got one last week, thank goodness. 

Which reminds me, I may have some interesting news for the people in this thread after a meeting on Wednesday.  Stay tuned!

Any update?

You can get school loans through Michigan as a Canadian? Makes me wish that they liked me more.

Wow, you got yield protected hardcore.  Michigan is probably the worst in the T14 when it comes to rejecting over-qualified applicants.

I don't think it'll be too bad for me, though. Would just like to know as much about my options as possible.

I was home this weekend for Easter (I'm a canuck living in the US right now), so I made the rounds to the banks to see what they will be able to offer.  My most sucessful was by far TD.  They offered me a $80,000 line of credit, at Prime +1% , not having to pay it back (except for the monthly interest) until a year after I graduate.  I think the interest is basically the same deal they offer most people, but I only think they offered me the full 80K because my Dad does A LOT of business with the guys at the branch I went to. Because I went to RBC right after (where I bank, but my parents and their businesses do not), and they basically laughed at me. They actually told me that they consider students attending foreign schools "high risk", so they charge prime + 3.5%, and if I get a co-signed they MIGHT consider $20,000
