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

Yeah I would definitely disagree. Without family help when could they realistically pay that off?

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.

@Coolperson49494: yeah but i physically cant get 10k in less than a month :(

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 😭😭
