Student loan question (Posted on 1/8/13 at 2:09 pm)
So I'm going into my last 2 semesters of college. I have worked part-time jobs every semester since my sophomore year of high school. I have less than $1k in savings. This semester I will be doing an unpaid internship on top of 19 hours of school. I simply wont have time to work a part-time job.
My rent is $350/month.
Utilities are usually in the $60-70 range.
Groceries are about $100/month.
Tuition/books are paid for.
I don't eat out so miscellaneous purchases are almost nonexistant.
My question is: Is there a student loan where I can get a small amount of money (~5k) just to help me through these last 2 semesters where my income will be almost nothing? If so, where do I begin to look? I know loans aren't the best ideas, but I don't know what else to do at this point aside from declining the internship.
