I was just accepted to California State University Long Beach's BSN program and will be attending there starting this fall. I am so happy that all my hard work has paid off! Only problem is I have no means to pay for school other than private loans and hopefully a part-time job to cut back a little on the loans I'll be taking out. However, I will still probably end up with at least $40k in loans plus interest.. My question is what companies you recommend to get a loan through and if you have any other ideas on how to minimize my debt.I have no technical "financial need" because my mom is an RN and makes too much money for me to qualify, yet she cannot afford to pay for my schooling. I will be lucky if I get any scholarships so not much help in that area. I am considering possibly Army ROTC or Navy ROTC because of the financial aid and gret leadership opportunities but I am a little afraid of the commitment and my family is totally against it. Any thoughts on these programs? Any advice is immensely appreciated! Thank you
Good news! I was offered $7500 in subsidized and unsubsidized Stafford loans
more than I had anticipated receiving! These loans will cover my tuition for the fall/spring semester so now I just have to figure out how to pay for the summer semester tuition, books, housing, food, etc. At least now I know some of my loans will have a good interest rate!
