Private Student Loans, Good for All Seasons | 08.27.09
Imagine having an application for school with NO deadline. What’s that you say? An application like that already exists? Which one? Oh, I didn’t realize a private student loan application could be completed at anytime – even in the middle of the semester.
I think most of us naturally assume that every school related application has a specific financial aid deadline, and for good reason. Most applications do have specified deadlines. I recall when I entered my junior year of school, back in the golden age, that people were telling me to make sure my SAT prep class and test were taken by this date, and that I needed to send out my college application(s) by the end of this particular month, and that I was crazy if I hadn’t completed my FAFSA and scholarship applications by the middle of January of my senior year. By the way, for a complete list of grade by grade college preparation plans from 8th to 12th, visit college action plans. The process of getting into college was completely overwhelming to me.
I had been so used to letting Mom handle things for me and now I was the one in the center of the storm. That’s why it’s good to know there is a floating deadline when it comes to student loans. After the Mom and Dad ATM runs out it’s comforting to have a place to go to get the funds you need.
