Private Education Loan

Agnes Said:

Does anyone know any good unsecured private loan lenders? I need it for an education loan.?

We Answered:

If they took the error off I do not understand why your score would not improve.

Pull your reports again and see if they actually fixed it yet. If they haven't fixed it, tell them to get off their butts and fix it ASAP.

Dave Said:

Does anyone know of a good private education loan consolidation program?

We Answered:

Do some serious research. Student Loans are hurting people beyond belief. There is plenty of free money, even a few years in the military is a better alternative. Here is an article from CNN/Money magazine:

Student loans - a life sentence
Forget about getting married and buying a home. This generation is thinking about next month's payment.
By Christian Zappone, staff writer
May 1, 2006: 4:25 PM EDT
NEW YORK ( - Mayrose Wegmann, 25, should have been starting on her dream career as a political consultant by now. And saving toward her first home.
Instead, Wegmann, who graduated with a degree in political science and journalism from the University of Iowa in 2004 and moved to Washington, D.C., is working at a non-profit because it pays significantly more than entry-level politics work. And she won't even consider buying a home for several more years.
In fact, she won't consider much except how to meet the $300 a month she owes on her $34,000 student loan balance.
"The school debt makes you decide [about your career] based on the money factor. Not based on what you want to do," said Wegmann.
The Class of 2006, set to graduate this month, will soon be in the same boat.
Approximately two-thirds of all students use loans to pay for their higher education, according to the Center for Economic and Policy Research. The average debt is $15,500 for public schools and $24,600 for private – many students rack up even more on their credit cards.
Call it a reverse dowry: college debt diverts careers and delays or impedes graduates' plans to get married, buy a home or even to start a family. The effects can last years.
A 22-year old student graduating this year who consolidates their $40,000 loan at 6.125 percent will need to pay $243 a month...until they're 52. By that time, they will have paid $47,494 in interest alone.
A reverse dowry
"My student loan debt is my biggest source of stress in my life at the moment," said Steve Desroches, a 2002 graduate from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. "I live paycheck to paycheck."
The degree left Desroches, who works for a newspaper on Cape Cod, $50,000 in debt with no savings. He's unable to buy a needed car or to even think about entering Massachusetts's "out of control" real estate market.
The repayments were so financially restrictive he briefly considered declaring bankruptcy, until he learned it wouldn't affect his student loans because they're federally guaranteed.
"My feelings about my degree now? My graduate education was invaluable [to my career], but it wasn't worth $50,000, or more accurately, it isn't worth the debt. My options are definitely limited."
Christine Moellenberndt of Sacramento, California has given up on the idea of owning a home, at least anytime in the next 10-15 years. She graduated last June from the University of California, Santa Cruz with a degree in anthropology, and moved back in with her mother when she realized not doing so would mean living paycheck to paycheck with no chance of paying down her debts.
"That $675 I could be spending in rent could also be a good chunk of a credit card payment, or a huge payment for my student loans. I see that as a bit of a better investment than living on my own and struggling paycheck to paycheck."
Moellenberndt says at least half her monthly income working at a state regulatory agency goes to pay off her $18k in federal student loans. And although the debt is daunting, her plans to become a community college professor call for an advanced degree...hiking her debt in the future.
A growing issue for the economy and society
The cumulative effect of such student debt on graduates is unclear, although few would argue that its impact will be positive for the graduates, the economy or society.
"We've never done this to a generation of young people before," said Dr. Heather Boushey, Senior Economist at the progressive Center for Economic and Policy Research. "We've never put a generation in their 20s in debt they can't get out of before they started their work life."
"The normal approach in any healthy society is to help young married couples get started in life through marital gifts, dowries, and the like," Allan Carlson of the socially-conservative Howard Center for Family, Religion, and Society said.
"We now burden many young adults with student debt, sometimes massive in nature; the price being paid includes marriages delayed or foregone and fewer children. This is foolish public policy."

Chad Said:

With a private education loan consolidation is it better to have a fixed or variable interest rate?

We Answered:

A fixed interest loan gives you some predictability. If rates drop in a few years, you can always refinance the loan. With a variable rate, you are at the whim of the market, but might get a more attractive rate in the short term.

I like to know what I'm paying month to month, so I prefer a fixed rate. It makes it much easier to budget.

Arlene Said:

How do I replace my education loan with my employer for a private loan?

We Answered:

i dont think i understand...

if you have a stafford loan right now, you do not want to trade it for a private loan!!!

if you already owe a private loan to your lender, and you want to replace it, then you may have to take out a personal loan to pay the employer off...

Christopher Said:

I have a private education loan of est. $60,000 w/ interest rate 9.25%. How can I get a lower rate?

We Answered:

The intellectual challenges posed by a postgraduate qualification may be one thing, but assuring that you have enough finance available to get you through your studies and emerge without a huge millstone of debt is an entirely different test.

Even before taking the plunge into further study, chances are as an ex-student you will already owe a significant amount of student loans debt accumulated during your undergraduate studies. That debt does not need to be paid back until you are in a job paying over £15,000 p.a. and have left full-time higher education, but any additional loans taken out for postgraduate studies will add to the total that eventually has to be repaid.

Max Said:

Can I receive a private education loan with a 627 credit score?

We Answered:

It'll be tough unless you're in grad school/professional school.

Sorry. Try contacting your school's financial aid office and see what they say. They worked some magic for me when I was in undergrad.

on edit:

I forgot to tell you that I'm a business owner who can loan you money!
