Or just make student loans like any other loan and solve the problem tomorrow.
Well thats going to improve the problem. According to your statement, money will buy law school! By doing what you are suggesting we would eliminate more qualified candidates as if we don't have that problem already. We already have enough people attending law school who should not be attending there in the first place.
"But, but, but, no one would loan a poor guy money to attend Harvard!" Come on. Banks would be lining up to make loans to needy students who had the credentials to get into top schools, and tuition prices would drop rapidly. Not to mention schools could always guarantee some part of the loans or make the loans themselves if they are so worthwhile.
Attempting to improve "access" to education is what got us here in the first place.
Highly doubt it! I don't think Sallie Mae will care about someone's GPA, compared to someone's credit worthiness.
