(is still wrong)

There are like 3 posters on TLS that actually understand financial aid/loans.

Origination fees are taken out of the base of the loan itself, not added on. Also, given that PAYE exists, there is ZERO reason to allow interest to accrue like that, unless you just enjoy debt or something.

PAYE only works if it stays. Also doesn't account for the tax bomb.

Never taken out a student loan, but that sounds absurdly wrong. The origination fee is a fee, no? As in is added to the loan? Why would a school reduce their tuition bc someone was paying for it with loaned money?

I didn't fact-check OP, but LST says it's $313K at repayment. Are you planning on paying off the interest during law school? You're right about how the origination fees are taken out, but they're still part of the cost.

LST hasn't updated their numbers yet. They're still using tuition estimates for current 1Ls.

I'm sure 0L's can figure out debt without making a thread of the most extreme example imaginable.

If only there were a readily available calculator for debt repayment...

Oh wait, search Georgetown Law's debt calculator, and enjoy
