Month between clerkship and firm — change repayment plan?

Postby 20181989 » Tue Aug 02, 2016 12:17 am

Hey TLS — I'm sure there's an easy, right answer here: I've got a month between leaving my clerkship and starting with my firm (which pays a bonus). Is the better answer to change my repayment plan for a month to deal with the liquidity hiccup—and if so to which—or to get an advance on the bonus from my firm and stay the course with current plan?

Thanks.

In my experience it's often taken at least a month to get changed to a new plan, so if you have the option to get an advance on your bonus, that might be more practical.
