No i wasn't working, some people had familys, jobs, i don't know how they did it. I didn't work and i didn't have much time, studying all the time. You should be able to get a Signature loan it is a student loan from Sallie Mae, it is a federal loan i believe? Just go to the Sallie Mae website and call them and ask. I also found out too late at the end of the year, that i probably could have got food stamps, which is not a big deal b/c you get a credit card thing with money on it. you could check into that.
My program was probably around 35,000 total and i have 50,000 for that year, make sure you have enough for the year, plus emergencies, (i had to buy a car) You can always pay it back if you don't use it. You will save a lot living with family.
you can write if you have more questions about accelerated in general.

Thanks for the info.
But were you working while on the program? They recommend not working in most programs I've inquired about, due to the heavy class load, clinicals that last all day, homework, etc.
How can I get a loan even with high interest if I don't have a job? I thought the only type of loans for jobless people were Federal loans. I plan to quit my job in order to start the program. I have been saving some money to live during the year and have a cousin that will give me a room in her house temporarily. But she can't lend me money for school.
