  3. I’ve learned some important things through your post. I might also like to state that there is a situation where you will make application for a loan and never need a co-signer such as a Federal government Student Aid Loan. However, if you are getting a borrowing arrangement through a conventional loan company then you need to be made ready to have a co-signer ready to help you. The lenders are going to base their very own decision using a few factors but the main one will be your credit ratings. There are some financial institutions that will in addition look at your job history and make a decision based on that but in almost all cases it will be based on on your report.
