Uuuugh...

I made an oath to quit whining so much on my blog. It's boring and pathetic BUT I need help.

For those of you who once graduating from University went on to something else ie. medical school, law school, dental school... more school... How did you manage to pay for things in the beginning?

Right now Stuart and I have a problem. School starts on the 25th of this month ie. super soon! We have a place we want to rent that feels right BUT they want us to have 6 (other places want 12) months rent in our bank account seeing as neither of us are working/don't earn 2.5 times more than the monthly rent. We don't have that money. Our school loans will cover everything but they won't be in our account for a few more weeks. We don't have anyone who can co-sign for the place either.

I've contacted people from church and spoken to a Bishop in the area who's looking for someone who will let us rent a room from them for a short time.

So... what do we do?

lots of praying. :) everything will turn out for you, but it's scary not know HOW. a little faith, and all the trust you can put in the Lord. good luck, i hope you find the perfect solution!

Have you tried talking to the landlords and explaining the situation to them? Maybe the Lord will soften their hearts and they will be understanding and allow you to rent the place without your loans in your account? It is worth a shot...

We just went through this, you can feel free to email me if you'd like. Here's the gist of how it worked for us:

We had to show them our financial aide information from the school. I'm betting that since you know you have enough money for it, you have a written statement, on letterhead, from the school. If so, just show them this, and the amount you'll be getting in the form of a check when it is written to you.

Oh hell, why don't you just email me. lol.This is going to be ONE LONG comment if I go on and on. I can give you some good tips & info on how to run it all down.
