If that person doesnt have 10k however, could be outta luck

@menherachan: You should say that to GULC
MightyUnableSphinx

I mean fuck it right. Like, maybe they can help somehow. Probably they can't but if the alternative is "i dont go to gulc" who cares

Idk I doubt they can give you 10k cash, lmao, but who knows!
Others will disagree, but max out a credit card if you have to do so.
It's 10K. Not 100K.

10K at 21.51% interest. Lol
19:47
Yeah I would definitely disagree. Without family help when could they realistically pay that off?
20:18
If someone can live below the student budget at GULC loans could cover an extra $10K, but Grad PLUS loans still amount to $2 in repayment for every $1 borrowed on a 10-year plan at current interest rates. Not a choice to make lightly.

Apply for new credit card w/ 12 month 0% APR intro offer -> Max out card to 10k to get out of lease -> Go to GULC

You now have 12mths to pay back 10k with no interest

If you have decent credit history/credit score i bet the starting balance will be like 15-25k

Sincere thanks, with my respect :)
power score bible for logic games
@Coolperson49494: yeah but i physically cant get 10k in less than a month :(
it would take me like 6 months to get 10k
i agree that gulc is worth it for me, but i just do not have the means of upending all my plans and moving to dc
@MightyUnableSphinx: i cant pay back 10k with no job, and i'm already 5k in debt. i just do not have the means to attend gulc 😭😭
