Yup, heyguys, you can take out loans to cover your Estimated Contribution. I did it last year, and it worked just fine.
"Estimated Alternative Loan" can be GradPLUS...or you could do a private loan (but probably not the easiest to get/best option in this economic climate?).
ditto what rabbit said but with the caveat that private loans are sometimes better for some people - so be sure to explore all the different options (fixed rates, floating rates, repayment plans, etc...). yeah the economy isn't hot, but interest rates are at all time low and i can't think of a safer loan than for yls
Wait...so can I use GradPLUS to cover my "From parental resources" contribution in addition to the "Estimated Alternative Loan" amount?
