I've tried to search for the answers on the forum before posting, but I apologize in advance in case I somehow end up repeating an already answered question. Thanks in advance.
1. Where's a good place to buy a mattress set in Charlottesville? (I have read about people driving upto IKEA in DC(?) but I won't have a truck or anything to haul stuff so I need a place that delivers).
2. If you used Discover as your student lender, did you sign a Master Promissory Note that did not include a dollar figure for the loan amount? Is this how it is supposed to be or should I be looking to sign additional paperwork?
3. Any Idea when we might get our first loan check or deposit in our bank account? Do you have to set up direct deposit before you get to school?
4. When are we supposed to buy our books? Also, are most people buying supplements ahead of time or taking the wait-and-see approach as recommended by some posters?
I believe you're fine.
Last year my direct deposit was 8/26.
Buy your books after you get your sections on 8/14.
