I thought international students can get loans with a co-signer while some schools offer loans even without a co-signer...idk if that could work or not but I certainly wouldn't jeopardize my grades

He can get all the loans he wants apparently. He just wants to work to lower his debt apparently. Oh and he's a huge douche.

Truf. It's not worth it fox - OP will just flip out at you for "not respecting his decision" and "upping their post count and ignoring his original question".

Post thread that appears as if you're having a discussion about a particular subject; reveal later that that you're looking for an answer to a question that appears to have been added as an afterthought.

Get upset when people focus on the seeming main point of your post, rather than said afterthought, ignore their advice.

Wow that thread was gold. No idea how I missed that. My favorite part:

Unless I am in the top 5 - 10% of my class, which I definitely see as do-able, especially with easier competition at a place like Hofstra. I was top of my class in undergrad so I don't see what the difference will be here. Once again, I perform well in school. I just have some mental blockage when it comes to the LSAT.

Another possibilty is to start out in a place like Hofstra and then transfer to Columbia or something similar. I know someone who did that from Hofstra.

There really needs to be a way to know when threads like that happen.

Why don't you just start a 'good thread alert thread' in the lounge

I think I'm just going to have to start clicking on more of these Shithole or Shithole? threads. That Suffolk or WM thread that was linked from there was fantastic as well.
