Very informative on American Education Services. I would love to offer some advice on the amount you should borrow and how to manage your loan money. I highly recommend that you borrow what you can afford to repay. Factor in your career and the prospective salary. Go to the US Department of Labor at to get an approximation of your future salary. When it comes to managing your loan follow these guidelines:

1. Apply for a new loan for each year in college.
2. Ensure that you are admitted in school for half of the semester.
3. Make plans to make in-school repayments. This will reduce your final loan.
4. Make use of the six-month grace period after graduating to make plans on how to repay your loan.
5. Keep records on your lenders and the amounts borrowed. Do this in your entire college life. Most importantly, always remember to borrow responsibly.
