I hope to get a 2011 15" high end pro before school starts in January. (Starting a quarter later.) I was just notified I could get 5.5k in fafsa loans but needed to take the rest out in parent plus loans. I can pay most of the cost but will be short about $500. Is it possible that i can buy it before school starts or do i have to wait until the end of the quarter when they send out the refund checks? Has anyone here done this?
