Hey Blinders!

I applied for a personal loan from SoFi 6 months ago but got rejected.

Does anyone know if there is any cool off period. How long should I wait before reapplying for it?

Appreciate your help!

Visa - H1B
TC - 140k

Note - I need money for an urgent expense. I can repay it within 6-8 months

    You can use credit cards. Most new credit cards have 0 introductory apr for 18 months. If you need cold hard cash you can use plastiq to liquidate and pay a 3% fee.

    New credit card with low APR on balance transfer (most deposit into bank account). Depending on card, will be 2-3% or even less.

    Was there a reason cited for the rejection then? Did you have a decent credit history/credit score (700+) then?
