There are private loans as well. Many of my classmates took out way more than they needed to get by on. My tuition total was around 52k and one classmate had 220k in loans.
Was this before or after 2008? Because I called my Banks (wells fargo and chase) and they confirmed they can do private grad loans (for sky's the limit); however, you have to get the school you're going to confirm it's for cost of living. Meaning, through some process you tell your school what your supplemented income is and then they confirm for the bank that it's a logical number.
I know before 2008 there wasn't this step. If you (or anyone) had to go through this please give me any adivce

Maybe you could sell that crotch rocket of yours...
ROFL, don't worry. It's a 13 year old bike with value crushing modifications... bone stock (that's how they're worth the most) it's maybe $2,000... Then there is my bike with a engine cage, 1000rr tail, paint, etc... it's lucky if it's worth $1,000.... it looks good, but in the end it's not worth anything... besides. It get's 40mpg and saves me money on parking

Be grateful for the loan limits. It prevents you from borrowing from your future earnings. Live frugal. That last thing you want is to make a six digit salary and still live pay check to pay check. Your financial reward will come AFTER school, not during.
I understand the banks cracking down on loans because only 50% of college grads get jobs. Plus there is no guarantee that we'll pass.
However (big however); I need to borrow against my future earnings to go to school... that's the whole point. If I had the extra $30,000 (X2 years) to supplement the extra that the federal loans don't cover, I wouldn't need to back to school lol. I'm glad manusko posted his experience Hopefully I can get some more info here on those that have gone through securing private loans for CRNA school.
