Law School Discussion

I was looking through student loan options and was just wondering, is there any advantage to taking out Federal Unsubsidized Stafford/GradPlus loans if you have excellent credit?  The rates I get on Private Loans seems to be lower so should I just go with all private?  The subsidized Stafford seems like a great option but I don't quite know if there's reasons to get the other types with good credit.  Thanks!

One benefit of getting federal loans would apply if you plan to work in public service. The CCRAA (College Cost Reduction and Access Act) provides income-based repayment and loan forgiveness after 10 years of payment and work in public service - but it only applies to federal loans.
