Should I estimate the amount of money and take the loan out before the bill arrives, giving it plenty of time to me paid beforehand?
Should I wait til it arrives, take the loan out then, and hope they let me start classes as long as I show them the loan agreement so they know its coming? Would a community college do this? My other school did, but it was a 4 year college and was a lot more lenient about money.
Also, it is better to take out an entire year of school loans (two semesters) at once, or get a new loan each semester? I was just getting a new one each semester, but a few friends said its easier to take out one large sum and set it aside for the following semester.
