Darden Admissions Director Sara Neher recently posted a new video blog on the Darden Admissions News Blog about international student loans. She proudly announced that Darden has formally signed an agreement to secure loans for international students without a US cosigner. The lack of non-US-cosigner loans – which became an issue last year in the wake of the international credit crisis – was a major deterrent to international student applicants interested in attending Darden, so Sara is justifiably excited to have eliminated this problem. While Sara did not include details of the loan options, she did mention that the terms of the loan would be similar to those which the current international first-year Darden students enjoy.
This news is likely to cause a spike in international applications to Darden in the second round..
