  • Unless you have perfect credit and collateral to offer up that's worth more than the loan amount that's never going to happen in this economy. Why not get an apartment that you don't need an 18k loan for? my rent is $725 a month and all I had to put down was one month rent and a 150 dollar deposit

  • Use student loan money. I think $3000 a month is a lot of income and see no reason why it should be a problem unless you have a lot of other bills.

  • Is this a condo or something to buy? If this strictly a rental that is a ridiculous amount. If you are just starting out this is definitely too much.
