I get the feeling that many of them may not be in a position to afford to amortize the debt of current PI gunners and/or that of PSLF-hopefuls whose debt has been accumulating since graduation. What an awful situation that would be.
People asked about this at ASW and they said something independent would definitely be implemented. Don't recall the specific schools and obviously that should be taken with a grain of salt.
My past inquiry into this topic had a similar result. Apparently, people at NYU and UChicago said that, although I guess my question was actually more pertaining to those recent grads who are already on the integrated LRAPs.
PSLF/LRAP uncertainty would actually motivate me to take out greater debt at Columbia (or HYS where I'm very unlikely to be accepted) than T14s where I would be more likely to get money, or NYU which is undoubtedly slightly better for my specific PI interests.
