Get to know your loan
If you have to take out loans for graduate school, make sure you completely understand their ramifications. How much do the loans cover? When are you expected to pay them back? What's the interest rate? Answer these questions before accepting any loans.

Learn about financial aid disbursement
Find out how each potential school plans to disburse your financial aid. Will it be in monthly segments or all at once? Or will you be reimbursed at the end of the semester? Learn what each plan is and discover which works best for your financial situation.

Get to know the financial package
