Do I need an affidavit of financial support in an application for MS?

I joined my MS program almost a decade back and things might have changed since then. You might not need it at the time of application, but you need it before the University could issue an I20 (unless you got an assistantship or scholarship to cover you studies). This became a chicken and egg issue for me, as the bank issuing the education loan asked me to produce the I20 for them to sanction the appropriate loan amount and the University was willing to provide it, only upon submission of financial affidavit. Therefore, I had to seek help from a friend who transferred some money to my bank account, which was sufficient for me to get a financial affidavit of support. By the time I went for my US visa, I had my education loan sanctioned.
