Hi everyone, I am new to this site and will be starting CRNA school this fall. I just recieved my first private loan check in the mail today from My Rich Uncle and got a little nauseated when I saw how much money I will owe after I am done with school (from the accrued interest). I am in need of a little reassurance that paying back these loans is doable. This is only the first of many private loans that I am sure I will need and I am already worried about how hard it will be to pay them back!! I was also reading another post and some of you recommend getting as much money (private loans) up front as you can and just putting it in a savings account until needed....what about the difference in interest rates because it costs way more to borrow it than you make in savings...do you just suck it up because you have to??? Thanks in advance for your replies..
