Worried that you might miss school because of your bad credit rating, and can’t manage a private student loan? Come on, there are lots of other ways in which you can manage a private loan, and you WILL go to school.
Today, Governments, local communities, businesses, are all worried about education for all. They want to encourage people like you to go to School, and they know you may be facing this dilemma of bad credit private student loan.
Instead of hanging around and brooding about it, get cracking! Look up the Internet, with some keywords, and presto, you will find so many you would wonder how come you did’nt know.
Your School would have the details of these private student loans from your school itself. You should meet your school counselor and place the facts plain right in front of him. These loans are available on certain terms and conditions. Take an example of a government loan, which is subsidized, like the Stafford Loan. You pay back, after six months of your graduation. And the rate of interest is generally much lower than those in the private student loans market.
Get in touch with your bank. Take an appointment, and meet the person concerned. Put your problems right in front, keeping back nothing. Be prepared for a hard grind. They also know your predicament, and yes, they too have advisories from Government to help, provided conditions are fulfilled. They know you and you know them because you are their customer. It helps them too to help you. How? They can come out at the end of every quarter or half, with statements about how many people they have helped with how much money from within your community! Its called Corporate Social Responsibility. You better start learning these things.
There are other ways too. You could try for a bad credit private student loan, by asking your father and mother to opt for loan known as PLUS. It will be cheaper, and further, the loan shifts to them, hence they have to repay, and it is based on their rating. You don’t come into the picture. However,be sure that you pay them back the moment you get a good job and within that six months that Government does ask for. That way you will make your parents happy and proud of you.
You could still get that bad credit private student loan if one close chums agrees to co-sign with you, because his good credit should offset against your bad one. It’s like a joint account. If one doesn’t pay up, the other has to. You could have your parents or other family members do this. But you have to be very careful in repaying it on time, all the time. Otherwise you risk their credit going down as yours is already!
So take care. And get to school, and forget about everything else except to study hard, get good grades, and repay the loans you have taken, and stand up tall.
