I plan on entering a program come Spring 2010 and I'm worried about financing my education. How does the loan situation look for this year? I hear some say there was no problem while others say they are having problems getting the private loans necessary to cover some expenses. Any of you upcoming fall 09 or even Spring 09s that have started already and can shed some light on the student loan scenario?

I have a credit rating of 780 or so but with the way things are these days that might not even be enough to secure the loans required for school.
