Poverty level depends on your family situation. http://aspe.hhs.gov/poverty/09poverty.shtml. A 41k income wouldn't qualify as 150% below your poverty line in a family of 1.
True, I misspoke when I said it was the same for everyone. But his poverty level is not going to change according to what school he goes to or how much debt he has, which was my original point, one you've yet to rebut but oddly won't concede.

You can benefit from LRAP and IBR at the same time. I think an LRAP that allows you to do whatever you want in the legal field is better than one that limits you to working only two types of jobs.
Michigan's LRAP is basically useless for a single person making more than $40k/yr. GULC's is so good you might never pay a dime for law school. But you're going with Michigan for the "flexibility" in being able to choose non-PI, horribly-compensated jobs. Different strokes I guess.
