My other half is a current graduate student at a local university. Her financial aid is limited to student loans (stafford, grad PLUS loans, etc), and work income is the occasional once or twice a week shifts. Does anyone have any creative success stories in their experience getting approved for a home loan as a grad student to help share living costs? The goal is to obtain an FHA or a traditional 30-year conventional. Would be entertained to hear your input on this!
