I got accepted into a 10 month LPN program through a tech/vocational school...so not technically a college. I start in September and was told by the financial aid counselor that I can apply for the Wells Fargo Non-Certified Student Loan (after maxing out my Staffords). I know they are still lending money, but how hard is it to get approved? I have a credit score of roughly 610 (lack of judgement during college) with spare job history because I worked as a nanny off the books, but I have a co-signer that has extremely good credit and 15 years at the same job. I only have 1 week until I apply, so I know that it's basically a waiting game, but just wanted to see if anyone else has been approved, or denied within the past few months! I need this money to pay the majority of my rent & bills while I'm in school (I will be working part time), so I really hope I get approved! Also, I know they say that you can take up to $15,000....I plan on applying for about $8,000...does that help? LOL.
