    Hi
    Has anyone heard of CanHelp private Loan program for med/dent students? How was your experience & do you recommend it? I've heard that their interest rate is good (prime + .5%) as suppose to most banks which are prime + 1% but the catch is that their "Initial Fee" is very high. Here is their website: http://www.internationalstudentloan.com/canadian_student/graduate/index.html

    I appreciate any help,
    dentalfairy

    CanHelp is good because you can borrow large amounts and defer repayment till you graduate. However, they compound their interest quarterly! I went for the bank loan/ line of credit from BMO. Whatever I can't cover with that, will borrow from CanHelp.

    To the OP: try the SDN Financial Aid forum. There are aid specialists there, and you'll probably meet many more students who can give you the feedback you are wanting.
