Hey there, Maybe someone can give me a hand with this problem . I just got off waitlist and have a little less than 6 weeks to the beginning of school. I need a car, badly. Where I'm going (UCI) its pretty much a necessity. I've heard that federal med loans aren't supposed to be used to buy a car, so will I get any help from my school? My family only has one automobile, and its in pretty bad shape to boot. We've only got one wage-earner in the household and no credit. To get an idea of how low down the socioeconomic ladder I am, I actually got an AMCAS fee waiver. Any suggestions?
