If you're really set on going into government then GULC is the right choice. They currently have one of the best LRAPs in the country which pretty much amounts to: if you make less than $75,000 a year you don't pay back anything on your loans and after 10 years they are completely forgiven. The risk of course is twofold. 1) You decide you don't like working for government and want to get into the private sector. 2) You aren't able to find government work. In either situation you would then be forced to pay up on all your loans.

Thanks for the responses, everyone. My main concern is the with the new loan repayment guidelines, government jobs will be nearly impossible to get. At the Admitted Students Day, everyone seemed to intend to go into the public sector to take advantage of the program. It's been similar at every ASD/ASW I've attended so far. With every financial aid office and career center pushing these jobs- will there be enough to go around? It seems to me like eligible public sector jobs might become the most competitive.
