After receiving my financial aid I was very discouraged because it only covered a fraction of my tuition. I sought out loans mainly through the internet, but I did not have much luck. All of the offers had high interest rates and applications that seemed to never end. I then decided to go into my local credit union, Member’s 1st, and apply for a loan. Within a matter of days, I was approved for a loan that had the lowest interest rate out of all the offers I received. They made everything extremely easy and lifted the heavy weight off my shoulders. I would like to thank them for allowing me to continue college and pursue my dream of becoming an engineer!
