For those who are worried that you won't be able to repay your student loans unless you take a high paying Biglaw job, the College Cost Reduction and Access Act will save you (kind of)
Passed this fall, the CCRAA provides that you can use an Income Based Repayment scheme to repay your federal loans (Stafford, GradPlus) at only 15% of your discretionary income over the poverty level. It also provides loan forgiveness for public interest lawyers after 10 years.
