Reading Student Houses

Gregory Said:

Are there any college students out there that have a student loan pay for off campus housing?

We Answered:

college loans as long as they are not grants are to be used for anything you need for going to college ie: car payments, gas, rent, clothing, food, school supplies, books, and obviously tuition. If you need it to be able to go to school than that is what you do with it. Be careful though and follow through with getting the degree because this money does have to be paid back and you can not get out of paying these bills once you are out of school. so use the money as efficently as possible. By the way NY is a very expensive state. Rent for a one bedroom is going for 1800.00 to 2500.00 a month.

A lot of people are saying credit card is evil and avoid it if you're a student but...?

We Answered:

Credit card is not evil or anything like that, the real evil is our spending habits. Living in this society today, the 3 most important digits are the credit score, and most of the time the credit report is even more powerful than any degree. I would take an 800 score over $300,000 in cash, and I would take a clean power credit report over any degree. If anyone think I'm "bs" , you need to think again . Now ask yourself this question : who would give you a credit line of $100,000 ? Not your best friend, your lover , not even your family or your parents. But , with an 800 score, there are many reputable banks begging you to accept their credit cards offers. They don't even care to verify your income or employee.

1 last note . If you're making $100,000/year and have a poor credit score, you won't even be approve for a $500 credit card even though they have verified your employee/income.

What will happen to current subsidized student loans under new house bill?

We Answered:

This article does not say it will end all Subsidized student loans (read farther than the grab-ya headline)... it says it will end all Subsidized student loans through PRIVATE lenders such as Sallie Mae, Wells Fargo etc. (These are commonly referred to as FFEL loans).

If the bill is passed, these loans would still be offered as DIRECT Subsidized Student loans (meaning loans you get directly from your schools fin aid office - direct from the fed government rather than going through a middle man like Sallie Mae, Wells Fargo, etc. These private lenders will no longer be able to charge you high fees that are associated with student loans. (called Origination Fees). The government will only charge you 2%. A private lender may charge you more. (or at least that what the article says).

This is a GOOD thing for students. You probably have DIRECT subsidized student loans already and don't realize it. Schools fin aid offices have been offering them more and more to get ready for this bill to pass!!!

Your current subsidized loans would not be effected in any way.
