Taking 5gs out GradPlus or my Credit Card

Postby bartleby » Sat Aug 25, 2012 6:37 pm

I wanted to take 5k out from GradPlus so I could live a little easier this semester. Tell me what is wrong with me plan:

GradPlus - 4% initial hit, something like 8% interest starts running

CC - 3% initial "balance transfer," 0% until August 2013

So can't I just take out 5k more next year (from GradPlus or maybe pay it off) to avoid 9% of 5k?

500 is nothing to sneeze out but I'm wondering if there's anything wrong here (besides staying in law school after getting 0 OCI interviews)
