Even if you already owe?

I really want to go back to school, but i owe around 10,000 in student loans. I do pay onthem but not what they want each month.

I really want to go back to school bad. I screwed up when i was younger and it was my own fault. Im 25 now and way more mature and ready to get my life straight.

Why don't you use the degree you got your loans for?

Yes, you can up to a certain amount. After that you hit that amount they are done loaning you money. I assure you 10k isn't even close to the limit for undergrad.

You might be able to. You are pretty far from the maximum loan limit. Talk to a financial aid counselor at the school you want to go to. They are usually more than willing to help you out.

You can if lenders want to lend to you. If they see you are not making the minimum payment the can easily assume you might do the same with them. It doesnt hurt to try.
