Title: Student loan default rates
Post by: JoJo 2006 on May 20, 2006, 01:00:51 PM
I graduated just yesterday from a bottom feeding T4.  To my dismay, I found out our school (Roger Williams) has the highest default rate amongst all law schools.
Should I get an LLM at another crappy T4 so I can defer these loans?

if you don't want to default on your loans, then get a job.  you just graduated, right?  why not study for the bar exam?  first things first, you know?  i bet most people default because they don't pass the bar, not because they went to a tier4.  have a little pride in your school and a little more confidence in yourself.

I would agree, also remember that gov't backed loans now have to be paid back no matter what, so even claiming bankrupcy will not erase them.  Also you can get bar exam loans which will most likely have a lower interest rate than your credit card.
