The school I wanted to go to seemed like they weren't going to accept me so I took them off the list a few months ago. I was accepted to another program which starts tomorrow. Whoops, on Saturday I got an acceptance letter from the first school. Now what?? [more inside]
Asking for a friend: Buying a house and going to grad school...can it be done? There are various circumstances in my life which make this a very advantageous time for me to purchase a house, however, I am also planning to quit my job and go to grad school in the spring. The mortage payments will be less than I would pay in rent, and between help from family and financial assistance I will be able to afford all my expenses, but am concerned that if I apply for financial aid before finishing the mortgage paperwork, it will cause issues with the lender. Is this the case? If I don't purchase the house now, due to other circumtances it could easily be 6-8 years before I have this opportunity again, if ever. Any advice appreciated!
