I worked for Direct Loans so I know a little about these things. You do have a few options. If your income is very low you could change pay plans to the "Income Contingency Plan." This plan is where you make payment according to your income. The payment can be as low as nothing a month. Usually they have payments of $12 a month. After 26 years the federal Government will forgive the loan and you will not have to pay it.

Bankruptcy is designed for the equitable treatment of creditors and to give relief to overburdened debtors who have fallen on hard economic times. Some loser, who rings up unsecured debt with the hope of discharging it in bankruptcy when the spending spree is over, is pathetic.


Are you sure?

How much debt justified for law school

$150K: T14 + some T20 schools (provided that you want to do biglaw/midlaw)

<$100K: The rest of T1 and strong T2* students looking to do biglaw/midlaw

Gov't loans only: Any weak T2* or T3/T4 + those interested in public interest/gov't work(other than sec & doj) + those looking at small firms


_____________________________ _____________________________ ____________________________
*Weak T2 = T2 in a legal market with a lot of competition from other schools.
*Strong T2 = Regional powerhouse with little competition from T1 schools.
