Just wondering if anyone has ever app'd with BofA and had it take the full 30 days that they say it may take. Just app'd with them on the 1st day of the app spree for DW (8/30) and they still say it is under review. Wondering if she should call and try talking to the UW dept, any suggestions?
I will be going to grad school next year, and it is a very expensive school. I will be taking a Stafford loan, but will still need a plus loan to afford school. I have many baddies and charge offs, but they are all from 5-6 years ago with the exception of a 200 charge off from Verizon from a year ago.
My questions: will the older baddies keep me from getting approved for a plus loan
will the small and recent verizon charge off keep me from getting the plus loan?
I really want to attend the school. Thanks.

Hello to everyone.
I’m going through the process of buying a home. I did a pre-qualification with Navy
Federal back in July. We really
couldn’t find anything we were that interested in and wondered if we should
wait until our credit is a little better. We’ve been rebuilding over the past year and have really
crossed some hurdles.
As it turned out, we found a house a couple of weeks
ago. We made an offer and it was
accepted. So, we did an
application over the phone with NFCU.
By the way, they have the absolute best people working for them. I spent over an hour chatting with the
girl taking my application. She
was so helpful and inspiring!
Next, I was contacted by the LO with an email asking for
some info on employment (we are self employed), and an explanation letter
regarding a couple of charge offs on my husbands report. They also wanted an explanation letter
for that as well as inquiries in the past 120 days.
My middle number was 695 but my husband’s was 658. I didn’t realize that they base it on
the lowest score.
So I sent everything to her and waited on pins and
needles. I finally called her on a
Friday just before they closed – (about 3 days later) and she told me we were
approved! I was beyond happy. She gave me a long list of the things she
needed (taxes, rent contact information for the past 2 years, bank statements. I got nearly everything ready over the
weekend and started sending on Monday.
Later that week, I was contacted by a processor, who asked
for more information – 1099s , explanations for every address on both our
credit reports and a few other things.
I got all of those together as quickly as possible and sent them to
Now comes the waiting game and let me say that it is harder
than waiting for an overdue baby to be born. I literally can’t sleep. I check my email a few hundred times a day and find it
nearly impossible to concentrate on work.
I did hear from my realtor that the appraiser came out this
weekend but I have heard nothing about it. Does anyone know how long the appraisal process takes? How long before the credit union gets
the info before I hear? I have a
I also keep wondering if there is any special meaning to the
appraisal being ordered. In my
heart of hearts, I really want to believe it is something positive relating to
the loan – like they feel it might turn out okay??? Hopeful! Or is
it just another step in the process.
I have no idea where I am at this point and don’t want to call and bug
I must say, they have the nicest – most professional people
working for them. My loan officer
was so incredibly nice and helpful.
I feel as if I’ve made new friends – which is a far cry from what I’m
sure the old stuffy banks would feel like.
I’m just really looking for any info anyone can give me on
the process – especially if you have dealt with NFCU doing a mortgage. I have nothing but wonderful things to
say about them in regards to checking, savings, credit cards and LOC.
Until I hear something, I am in the process of reading every
single post on every board I can find about the mortgage process and everyone’s
This is a great board.
I’ve taken my scores and reports to places I could not have imagined a
year ago. Please keep your fingers
crossed for me that this will be my next giant step into home ownership!
P.S. Would love
to hear your thoughts and where you think I am now. We are scheduled to close on October 14 but I would love to
do it sooner. We have a lease that
is up at the end of this month and we really need to let our landlord know by
the end of this month. I’m hoping
to get some sort of answer by then.
I am new to the mortgage process, and I have a question regarding underwriting. What is the REAL difference between manual and auto approval? For instance, if my mid score is say 700, but there is a baddie present, will an auto approval guarantee loan funding or at some point will human eyes review each tradeline and possibly place conditions on the loan? Thanks all!
