Wow, that's pretty good...I thought only HSW would offer that kind of aid to internationals.

Still though, does anyone else have ideas on how to get additional loans, if you can only get tuition loans from your school?

where you able to figure out what loan to use? I'm in a similar situation also, and am not sure what to do yet.

Would a cosigner help in getting a loan?

a US co-signer will ALWAYS help you and widen your choice CONSIDERABLY. I wish I had one. But I dont dare to ask people to cosign 80 grand loans...

Ross certainly seems better than Chicago in this regard. 5% insurance fee is quite a bit...

Yeah Ross is gret when it comes to loans and giving out free money :)

but, all internationals are supposed to show about 8K in the bank for the I-20 to get issued (8K beyon the amount that the loan covers) :). I have like 0 USD saved in liquid money that I can show so now i am trying to figure out how to come up with 8K in about a month
... such a bad surprise :)

So you have to show the entire tuition+expenses money before you can a apply for I-20 and visa? That doesn't make sense, since ... why would you need a loan if you already have the money, and you need to have access to 130K to show them, right?

I know 8K is not all that much but when you have not planned on it, it becomes a really bad surprise :(

Does anyone know how a financial statement should look like?

I mean, noone has 150k in the bank, and as Darden said, I am not going to take out a loan NOW, but rather in September, when payments are due.

what is the bank supposed to write on that statement?

I am completely clueless...

I am not sure if this is the right forum.
I am an Intl Student from India planning to attend Fall 2010. I have an admit from Kellogg and am looking for ways to finance my MBA. Anybody on the forum know how to go about it. Kellogg has two loan options for Intls.
Op A - With US Co-signer - 7.5%
Op B - With Intl Co-signer - 8%

Does anybody else know of any other options for kellogg.

i was looking around the net for information regarding Stafford Federal loans. Offhand, I'd say I'm not qualified given that I am not a US citizen, but the websites I visit keep saying that it's available for "eligible non-US citizens." This naturally begs the question: WHAT IS AN ELIGIBLE NON-US CITIZEN?!? can someone please shed some light on this matter?

It probably means US permanent residents i.e. those with green cards.

Since most of the data here is outdated (from the perspective international aspirants applying in 2014-15 season), I believe we can start a fresh discussion.
