Broo... I'm thinking about the MI Loan instead of GradPlus.  I hadn't thought about it replacing unsub Stafford.

My one thing is that I might do government work after a few years of firm work, and the federal government's LRAP (which there's no guarantee I would even get... it seems to be a discretionary recruiting tool for them) would not pay back the MI Loan... only federal loans.

You are the master of recruitment.

Hi Everybody!

I've been reading this thread for a while now, but since Monserrat found me in the "A question about Michigan vs. Penn" thread, I thought I'd say hi. Can't wait to move to Ann Arbor in August and looking forward to meeting all of you!

yay!  flyaway, aren't you proud of me?!?

i am definately not...that would be flyaway and jolie, hopefully i'll get some praise from them for bringing over two new people. 

I think S.A. deserves some recognition for her recruiting prowess, too!

holy smokes... are we eligible to take part in the MSF (michigan students first) program?

it's incredible: ZERO PERCENT INTEREST after 36 on-time payments.

apparently stafford and Grad PLUS loans are indeed eligible. the only question i have is are we eligible to have our loans serviced through them since UM Law demands that our lender be the Federal Government (i.e. the "Direct Loans; the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program" people)

has anyone heard about this or looked into it? are we eligible if we get our loans thru UM Law?

so lame question--- what else is there that people would want besides high paying firm or govt/pi --- are there people who are searching for middling firm jobs??

Yes, in fact.  OCI is dominated by large firms in large cities (or suburbs of large cities) that pay well.  People who want to work in smaller firms with lower pay but fewer hours, faster partner track, and higher reported associate satisfaction may have trouble identifing these places.  People who want to work in smaller cities or states may have trouble (try finding a job in Maine, Vermont, or New Hampshire).  By "trouble" I don't mean to suggest that the degree is not marketable there, only that identifying such firms and getting your foot in the door will be a largely - if not entirely - individual endeavor.  If, on the other hand, you want to work in a major metropolitan area at a top notch firm, you can pretty much just submit your bids, take your interviews, and then relax.
