Financial Aid for 2nd Degree Help?

  1. Apr 23, 2012 #1
    Hey All,

    To start out with, I have a degree in Biology, emphasis Microbiology from MNSU Mankato that I received in 2010. I'm working for a good biotech company but am going back to school this fall for Mechanical Engineering. Aerospace engineering is absolutely fascinating to me. Biomedical is as well but not to the same extent... yet. I have set myself up well for the biomedical route (although at this point all of engineering seems very interesting to me) so figured I will go back for a 2nd BS.

    My goal is a 3.5 GPA for my 2nd degree. I do not think I can get this working while in school (only summers) but apparently I'm inelligible for FAFSA aid.

    Where do you all go for your private loans? Searches on google turn up junk. I've heard a couple names from friends but both have pros and cons.

    I'm not sure if this forum really deals with these questions but it is a very intelligent forum with several people who I'm sure are in the same boat as me. My girlfriend of 4 years has a sister who is now a dentist and took loans out through Chase through dental school and this is also who I am leaning towards.

    Thank you for your help and time. It gets to be quite tiring when you spend 3 out of your 5 hours home after work looking at schooling, scheduling, and financial aid.
