I hope you got a big scholarship, because it will take you 50 years to pay off your debt if you pay sticker and do PI after grad
yeah... except that if you do PI, your loans are forgiven after 10 years. even if you don't do PI, you can do income-based repayment, never paying more than 15% of your income, and after 25 years of that, your loans get forgiven. and if you go to American and do PI, your loans for those 10 years will be fully covered by their LRAP program if you make up to 50K, sliding scale from 50K-75K.
but thanks for your "informed" opinion, egor2510! very helpful!
