Loan Forgiveness and Public Service
« on: June 20, 2010, 11:15:16 AM »
I wanted to throw this question out there because I cannot seem to find an answer.  If you do 3 yrs of clerkships and then 7 yrs public service (DOJ is the goal) have you reached the 10 yr mark for loan forgiveness?  I feel like someone told me the clerkships yrs don't count.  Maybe I am confusing it with my schools LRAP, which does not cover clerkships. 

I haven't started calling direct loans or anything to get the official answer (if someone will actually do that there  . . . I really dislike dealing with people hired to handle this stuff, no one seems to have an answer) but I thought maybe someone here has had confronted this problem or knows the answer.
