We found out the weridest thing the other day. My daughter needed more money for college and couldn't get a loan without a co-signer. Our credit really sucks and no one else would do it for her. Come to find out if the parents apply for an Unsubisized parent plus loan and get turned down, she can get more money from the school. I wish we would have known that sooner. Put ourselves in the poor house trying to help her out. so if there is anybody out there with kids in college and need more money for them just do what we did. They did it right over the phone and told us we were denied and sent the paper work straight to the college.

With my luck, I'd get approved and my son wouldn't get any additional money from the school....

The only way you get approved is if you have really good credit. My daughter ended up takeing out 3 loans for the fisrt two years with my mom's help but she decided she wasn't going to help anymore. I wish they would tell a person this stuff
