From what I understand, based on the many questions I have peppered lenders with, no lender will grant an exception and lend me the money because they do not work with my school, my loan application with the particular lender that does work with my school was denied mainly because I have a significant amount of student loan debt (of course), and it is unlikely that any other loan would be approved due to the amount of debt I am in (even though I actually have a good credit score for a law student, recently paid off my car, obtain good grades, etc.).
The bar prep course itself is about $3,000 ($2,995 to be exact) and it is generally recommended not to work for the two months while studying for the bar because it takes away from the amount of time you are able to spend studying. However, considering my current situation, not working may not be an option.
Anyone who knows me, knows how much I've struggled to obtain loans and scholarships and that I've consistently stated that the only thing that could possibly prevent me from fulfilling my dream of becoming a lawyer would be money. Anyone who knows me also knows that if I'm asking, it's only because every other attempt I've made to do it another way has been unsuccessful. I feel as though I am out of options at this point and am terrified that all of my hard work will not be enough to achieve my dream.
