I skimmed through a couple of threads but saw topics mostly about existing loans. I wanted to ask you all if you had any suggestions on my best course of action for obtaining a $3k loan for the upcoming summer semester. I already borrowed the max in federal loans for the school year and I was declined for an NJ class loan. I've applied for several scholarships but nothing despite my 3.85 GPA . I figured this leaves me with only the option to take out a private loan which is okay. I just don't want to waste a bunch of inquires considering I have a ton already. EX 32, TU 15 EQ 15. Any suggestions?
You may have already done this, but have you tried talking to your school's financial aid department? Lots of kids go there for info at my school, I believe. Perhaps they could be of more help since they'll have a better picture of your situation.
