Questions & Answers

Q: What is your position at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and what do you do in that role?
A: (04/30/2010-02:56) - I work in IT. I handle the 2nd level tech support calls for Faculty and Staff as well as doing other duties like scripting, and managing the student staff.

Q: Hello. Please include the balance(s), interest rate(s), required minimum monthly payment(s) and your normal monthly payment(s) for the debt you will be paying off with this loan. Thank you
A: (04/30/2010-14:13) - 4 Main accounts. Dell 500 29% $10 min NewEgg 500 25% $10 min Capital One 2k 14% 50 min Discover 1k 15% 40 min. I am paying off about 400-500 a month on a single card with minimums on the others. So Dell would be closed this month, NewEgg next regardless of the loan getting fully funded or not.

Q: Can you explain your delinquency from 31 months ago - what is was for and why it happened?
A: (04/30/2010-09:57) - I over extended myself in school and didn't pay attention to my credit card payments like I should have.

Q: Can you explain the discrepancy between your revolving credit balance ($4264 as reported by credit bureau on 4/28) and the amount requested ($6000)?
A: (04/30/2010-10:12) - Was going to use the extra money as a short term emergency fund. I've been using most of me extra money the past year to pay down debt. So by entering a structured payment schedule I will be able to save more money and as I am able to build my own savings. I have been paying about $500 a month in to my credit card debt monthly.
