Private student loans are evil and should be avoided at all costs. If you ever see anything that says “Prime + (insert number here)” you are getting ripped off and that will be more than the federal student loans.
Joseph, have you consider to apply for scholarship instead of student loans? Many people has to struggling to pay the loans back because of the high interest rate. Some friends of mine in college told me that they have valuable information regarding scholarships from this place.
