Holy cow! I had no idea. Do you have a link to this information?
And it seems like TLS is virtually unanimous on this decision! I am legitimately surprised. Glad that I came out of the shadows to get your opinions.
It isn't through Harvard it is through the federal government. It has nothing to do with the school you attend. PSLF is for people in qualifying public service jobs. http://studentaid.ed.gov/repay-loans/fo ... ic-service
Similarly, PAYE and IBR are payment plans through the government that reduce your monthly payment based on debt and income. It has nothing to do with your school or your degree. I think you can file as married filely seperately so your husbands income doesn't count. http://studentaid.ed.gov/repay-loans/un ... come-based
LIPP is Harvards own plan available to its students.
Right that makes more sense. Of course every graduate can use the PAYE/PSLF, but the poster above made it sound like Harvard had a program designed to limit out of pocket expense using said program (like every LRAP outside of HYS).
Oh sorry, I misunderstood. I would be surprised if it is different than just IBR or PAYE but that would be awesome for you. Good luck with everything.
