Traditional financing will probably not work for you as they require proof of income. The basic idea is that you should be able to pay back the loan. It doesn't really matter how much money you put down or your assets. If you can't show that you can pay back the loan, you will not get approved.
Seller financing may be an option for you. However most sellers would still require proof of income. Same concept - you need to show you can pay back the loan. Having said that, depending on how much you put down and how much you have in assets, we may be able go find a seller that is willing to work with you.
A third option would be a lease/option where you rent the property for a few years with an option to buy it. You could rent it while you are in school and get financing once you finish and get a job.
