If you talk to a person and explain the situation, and she might get a different answer. Credit union #2 will likely do the same thing and she will have wasted a hard pull on her credit report for no reason. At minimum, before she applies for a loan at credit union #2, she should ask them if her medical school debt will be a problem before she lets them run her credit.

Update: she called PenFed the other night and explained her situation. They referred her to a senior loan administrator and approved the loan immediately. Very easy. Thanks for the advice!
