  1. I highly recommend taking education loan.
    Also like your statement for education loan stating. An Admission Latter from the Institute or collage where you taken admission. Yes, you need to take admission before applying the education loan. You can get it easily from your education institute admin office by requesting. Student loan is a good idea and will stick to this point.

    1. Deepak, Yes i also recommended to take education loan and study stress free. As i personally taken education loan form SBI, and i finished my course without fees, all education fees are sponsored by SBI and now i will repayment in next 3-4 years easily. Only thing i don't like is we are in the country where auto loans are available at 8% where for education you have to pay 12.35%+ interest rate.

  2. I had a drop in my graduation will i still be eligible to education loan below 4lac..or the loan will most likely get rejected.Even if i get into a good university for an mba.

    1. Ofcours yes, nothing with dropout and fail, you just need to have admission in good collage. :)
