Applications must be accompanied by three letters of recommendation, and each loan must carry a co-signer. Serving McCombs as one of the two loan committee members at U.T. is Dr. Robert Mettlen, Lamar Centennial Professor Emeritus in Finance ( Consult the program’s website at for information and application materials.
