Quickest lender for a bar loan, still waiting on state results but want to sit for FL

Postby gladiator0flaw11 » Fri Apr 21, 2017 3:56 pm

It's going to cost me $1250.00 alone to register and I'm not working full time yet (interviewing and looks like I will be soon). I already took out only half of the maximum amount I was allowed for Sallie Mae but there was requirements such as being 12 months out from graduation etc. I didn't expect to fail that second time, let alone waiting on this third result. Can anyone recommend a lender for a small loan (2-4k) just to get through the fees and get on my feet with work. I never took out a personal loan and not sure how bad it impacts credit compared to regular student loans, but not sure what other options there are. Thank you!

The quickest and cheapest way is to apply a 0% APR credit card. Chase Slate and many AMEX, CITI or BOA cards offer 0% APR for 12 to 15 months.

I already applied and was granted a Chase Freedom Credit Card and CK tells me to apply for the Blue Cash every day from American Express. I think getting rejected on a credit card hurts more than a loan? Going to call some companies now and see. I can always consolidate with a personal loan too but the rate has to be fixed.
