You need 5 years post bankruptcy for a grad plus loan or you need a cosigner. Additionally, depending on the circumstance and story, getting your Federal Representative (whether house or senate) to intervene can help. All of them will have a constituent services person. It may not be fast and you may have to defer, but I have had success doing in a few cases, especially after the financial crisis of 2008

Im not 100% sure if this question is appropriate for this forum but does anybody know what the consequences for having previously filed for bankruptcy are on obtaining loans for medical school? Thank you!

No, it is not appropriate for this forum because you do not want to get the wrong advice on this issue. Call the USDOE and they will give you the correct information over the phone or direct you to that part of their website which has this information. I believe it is 5 years post-bankruptcy but you should verify this information with them and not on an anonymous forum when you are dealing with financial issues.

to be pedantic, OP didn’t ask for advice. Just asked for the consequences of bankruptcy on getting loans :pirate:
