The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Desperate Need of Student Private Loan!

    Ok. I just moved out of my rents house and I can already see I'm going to have trouble doing this on my own. I've applied at www.myrichuncle.com for a private loan, but I did not meet 4 of the requirements. I'm only 21 and have hardly any credit in my name. I'm trying to get some kind of loan for school. I'm really only looking to borrow $2000 a semester. The problem lies in the fact that I am already getting a stafford loan for tuition and books. I am really desperate. I'm working 40hours a week and only making 8.00 an hour. I really dont want to ask my parents for help since I just moved out. What do you guys recommend. Right now I'mn not school for the summer, I will be starting this fall.

    Stafford, Perkins, and GATE loans are good but I think the due date for the applications has already passed.

    What is holding you back from getting the loan at "My Rich Uncle"? I've been having problems with loans recently also and it blows.

    two options...


    im a college student as well with similr problems...



    A. find a co-signer and you can get a private loan


    B. Apply for housing and welfare, because if your a college student working 20 hours a week, with bills, you can apply for housing and get 250 dollars a month in federal foood stamps, just get some housing info and trust me you can apply, and its al tax free and you dont have to repay it, we have welafre use it to your ability....

    this way you have 250 doallars a month to buy food, plus government pays bills for rent and then your money you make you can ave and do what ever

    options:

    seek an employer(or ask your current employer) for tuition assistance. some employers reimburse, some provide student loans, ask about it.

    apply for grants, and aid through your school. try not to finance education through a credit card or a bank charging 20%. school loans are typically around 5-8%, and dont need to be paid back until graduation.

    since it's summer, get a 2nd part time job quick and just spend the summer working and saving.

    Yeah ethically I don't think I'd put myself on welfare. Or if I ever did I would pay back the amount later. Keep my ****ing dignity.

    I do not think my parents are willing to sign for a loan. I was thinking about asking my grandmother.

    yeah but he mentioned about a rent house, you can apply for housing if you want because techinically college students are eligible because they meet all requirements and there have been kids to do it. so its possible


    but i agree that if you can get it the co-signer is best
