Post-LS options and heavy loads of loans to repay
« on: June 05, 2007, 08:30:14 PM »
Based on my calculations  ;) and what we've knwon to be a common standard now, those of us, with 150-160k worth of loans at graduation will have limited job prospects i.e. only the more 'high-paying' ones whatever they would be.

Is that the final verdict though? Can clerkships or public service work still a possibility or should we say 'good bye' to that even before heading to registration for classes? Perhaps, with longer term repayment schedules like 15-20 (which, financially, is just a bit of an insane thing to have to do). LRAP programs can often be restrictive in what they can really pay or what jobs may qualify or can quickly disqualify you if you have a double-income/married situation... Any thoughts?  :)
