I'm looking for an alternative loan for school because the federal loan just won't cut it. I've looked at several options and I've come across a GradPlus loan offered by Nellie Mae and a Graduate Plus by Sallie Mae. I was wondering if anyone has used either company and if one is better than the other. The loans seem pretty similar to me and I'm trying to decide which to apply for (or if there's a better company out there). Any input would be greatly appreciated, since this whole private loan thing is new to me.
