If that person doesnt have 10k however, could be outta luck
yeah i think it comes down to literally not having 10k to blow

Jk even if i had it. I wouldnt spend 10k just to get out of a lease to switch schools

@menherachan: You should say that to GULC

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.

The rates on the stafford loans are garbage too

yeah its not the worst decision and im sure you could find solutions to any problems it might create but idk if it's like a no-brainer

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

im actually cooking right now wtf this advice is so good. do not blow up your plan in life because of a fkn lease agreement

Excuse me everyone. Sorry. I'm planning to take lsat but I see so many different types of textbooks and categories on the market, which books should I start with for a rookie like me? Thanks a lot!

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 😭😭
