WUSTL's LRAP / PSLF + IBR ? (Is this fwt or nay?)

Thanks !!
(that was a strange question, but I studied WUSTL's LRAP and I noticed that WUSTL offers a very generous LRAP--much more generous than some other schools that I've gotten into)

* I have more than average undergrad loans. D;


In case anyone wanted access to the forms:
http://law.wustl.edu/LRAP/documents/LRA ... an2015.pdf
http://law.wustl.edu/LRAP/index.aspx?id=4265

TLDR: LRAP II: Maximum PI salary for the Wash U LRAP II is 70k, Wash U pays 60% of your IBR payment (to use PAYE, must do LRAP I) , you pay the other 40%. At 10 years they expect PLSF (nothing mentioned about the tax bomb - I talked to financial services last year and they "expect" that Congress will take care of the tax bomb problem... but of course who knows). Minimum loan debt required to enter the program is 20k. There are strong limits to the amount of savings/equity/etc you can have if you are on LRAP.

Anyone have recommendations for where to buy a reasonably priced suit or two for interviews and such? Also any recommendations on where to get it tailored?

Depends what you mean by "a lot", but there are several.

Relative to other schools? And personality wise how do they get along with the rest of the student body, I know we have a reputation for being a bit douchey/elitist...

Hey Cuse, good luck to Syracuse in March this y...oh wait.

And I mean, a huge chunk of people here are from schools considered snobby, it's nbd. Also it seems strange to me to try to lump all people from a school into a category. It's an individual thing. There are people from a lot worse schools than duke that are snobby, and people from a lot better schools that aren't.

There are probably more vandy, wash u, mizzou, SLU grads, but other than those schools duke has as many as anyone probably.

Yeah I really wouldn't worry about finding other Duke alums, there are people here that you get along with, and it's not like people separate off by undergrad

Why did a 1L just CC the entire student body on an e-mail about after-hours library lighting?

Sure, but why CC the entire class is what I don't get.

Well the guy who wrote the email lists his Mensa membership on his Linkedin page, so you know his concerns are valid because he's smart.
