I was just talking to one of the advisors for the PLUS! loan (http://www.financialaid.com), and he told me that you're allowed to take out money for "leisurlely usage," i.e. you can add expenses to your loans for things like clothes, laundary, travel, etc. (not leisurely, but things in the budget that you really need).
Anyways, since school is pretty much a full-time job, (I'm balancing full time school with 30 hours of work a week and I don't have much money to spare), and I would like to know if anyone here has taken out loans where they're allowed to count such expenses(as mentioned above).
Please tell me your experiences with the plus loan or other loans.
