Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I just moved out on my own, have very little credit, not a ton of cash, and my job doesn't exactly pay a lot. I've also decided I hit the point where I need to get back in school (trade school, in case it matters).
The program I want to take is one year long and costs $12,000 paid in $3,000 chunks every quarter. Not much for education, but combined with living expenses it's more than I'm making right now.
I tried getting a student loan last year, but was turned down. No credit. My co-signer (dad) assured me he had good credit, but did not.
What steps could I take towards securing a student loan? I know the school goes through Sallie Mae, but are there other options? Maybe other companies that will deal with me having little/no credit?
