    I’ve learned many important things as a result of your post. I might also like to mention that there may be situation that you will apply for a loan and don’t need a co-signer such as a Federal government Student Support Loan. However, if you are getting a borrowing arrangement through a standard bank or investment company then you need to be ready to have a co-signer ready to help you. The lenders can base their decision on the few elements but the biggest will be your credit worthiness. There are some loan companies that will also look at your job history and make up your mind based on this but in many instances it will depend on your ranking.
