Best bar exam loans for decent to fair credit rating

Postby steellaw » Sat Nov 26, 2016 4:53 pm

I originally was given a bar loan from my law school and unfortunately failed the UBE. I'm going to need an outside bar exam loan to cover expenses and move out of a toxic house here at home so I pass this time. Can anyone recommend the best bar exam loan? I need to pass this time because I don't think I got it in me to sit for it again. Thank you!

I got my Bar exam loan from Sallie Mae. They allow you to borrow up to 15K

Even if I maxed out my Federal loans COA? I know gradPlus was always an option for more during school, but just want to make sure if my credit rating is fair that I can take out a loan to focus and study. Is that loan a fixed interest rate? I heard of Chase Slate and PNC too, trying to get this done.

Yes, I maxed out my COA and was still able to get one from Sallie Mae. Sallie Mae had the lowest interest iirc.

Was the interest rate fixe with Sallie Mae it's between them or the PNC Bar Exam Loan. Also, did you work or took out enough to not work. Thanks
