    The way the 18, 500/yr works for most CRNA programs is based on 2 semesters because we are in school for a full year (3 SEM), so the summer is an additional disbursement.

They can be like molasses in winter when the money is needed...

    To qualify for supplemental loans have most of you had to get a co-signer? I just spoke with Bank One about their education loan and because I would not be employed during school, I would need a co-signer.
