Hey guys, I need some quick advice. Some research opportunities have come up and I decided to quit my part time job to take it. I need about 10k for applications, possible interviews, and living expenses. I could put it on my credit card or possibly take a private loan out. Which one is a better option? I am thinking in about 9 months when classes end I can start working again to pay off these debts, but how should I pay for everything now? Thanks guys. I know nothing about private loans so any help is appreciated!
