Sofi last year refinanced mine with just H1B and not haven’t even started GC process. Their website said that wasn’t possible, but I called them, told them I worked for BCG, sent my paycheck, and voila

oh wow that's pretty sweet. I'll try that, thanks!

Not sure if you can 'refinance' a student loan but can take a cash loan. On hi1b, I've used Lightstream and Payoff in the past. All your options with % rate, possible principal amounts and monthly payments are displayed before you choose one that works for you. Even if you decide not to go ahead, it's still a hard credit enquiry on your report

Thanks! I'll check them out!

I refinanced with Earnest w/o a Co Payer. No GC

Oh sweet, thanks! was your original loan from the States or international?

I’ve used Prodigy on the F1 and then Common Bond when I received a stamped H1B

I have prodigy finance too. I just checked with them and they said they dont refinance prodigy loans since it's not from the US

So I just recently got into dating after a break up 3 months ago. I joined some dating apps and have been getting quite a few matches. I’ve never dated anyone like to a point of going on traditional dates. Basically, I have no clue what to do on a date once i have one planned. Like I’ve been on a few and it’s been just talking but I guess I have no clue what to do after. I’m probably just rambling at this point but basically I need advice on actual dates and how to feel it out and what to do. Ty
