Not sure why this isn't getting more play. Colleges and Universities are basically taking advantage of the poorer students and writing off their losses regularly while breaking down students who have to pay and pay and pay after graduating. THere is a trememdous discrepency here. SO?
It's not just higher education taking advantage: it is also Sallie Mae, the US govt., the collection agencies, the "credit repair" people, the lenders, the sub-lenders, the people that collections hire to find debtors, and the list goes on and on
The reality is this country is heading down facist lane in a fast and furious fashion. The ruling class could not possibly care less about students. Stop being poilite about this and get into the friggin streets and show some spunk like we did in the sixties.
I agree - tell me where to start, Joe! We are organizing... want to help?
Yeah, remember thousands of us out there protesting against the Vietnam war, and now where is everyone? Sooner or later there is going to be chaos; people are getting fed up with seeing the corruption in our civil servants, CEO's paying minimum wage and raking in millions for themselves, etc., I could go on and on. People need to stop being SHEEP, do some critical thinking and start writing letters to local, state reps., just DO SOMETHING.
I've been haunted by a student loan like a cancerous sore for twenty plus years, and it won't go away, no matter how much money I send them, enough is enough!
Our children are "drowning" in student loan debt! Please help them, like you've helped others.....
Student loan rules are more restrictive than the IRS, even they will negotiate a lower pay-off. There is something VERY wrong with the limitless powers of Sallie Mae and Direct Loans.
I have a problem with this because my daughter has a serious medical issue resulting from having tumors in her pancreas. She was denied SSI, and told to find a job. Ok what about these girls who can't keep their legs closed. They receive all kinds a government benefits because they have 5 children by 5 different men. The young adults who are trying to make a decent living by going to college should receive help instead of nasty phone calls, and harassing letters.
166k in debt but my credit score is 733. I can get a credit card at 0% but not my student loans.
Something to think about....the families of the politicians that revoked our ability to file bankruptcy for student loans can borrow as much money as they want and NEVER has to pay back a dime! Grrr!
I am thinking of family members and friends who spends thousands ,graduated and do not have work in their field of study or not enough money to leave home,start a family...
Want to give them a chance...
My loan was payed off ,Sally Mae took my income for my tax for three year then sold it to someone so that they could collect for a while I am fed up ...
