Re: C&F Lawyers

Spoke to administration today and the deans think that this will be a non-issue provided I can explain the charge, date, and disposition of the case on my application. For the time being, I'm going to hold off on this. In the mean time, I need to brush up on exactly what will be inquired into on a ...

Wife is a teacher on PSLF, IBR - 4th year in, and I'm a 1st year in biglaw with market pay doing REPAYE. We got married in August 2018, do we have to file as married filing separately to allow her to continue on PSLF? As Nony said, no, it doesn't matter for PSLF. However, you should file separately...

As a PSLF truther I wonder if it makes more sense to stay in ten year plan and take the law school for all the money it will give you and actually have your loan balance decline

The govt fucked it up. They couldn’t process people’s annual/IDR applications on time. Have you not read some of the wildly inconsistent crazy shit me and chicken have posted? The govt contracts this out to the most inept orgs. All of the news botched this story. You think 99% of people are paying ...

Re: Lit or Transactional

What's the feeling in the transactional world about the possibility of that side of legal practice getting increasingly automated (lit will get some too, but presumably the impact will be less in terms of job loss)? Do people think automation is going to have a big impact, or no? Pls god automate m...

Trying to decide if I should try to pay the accrued interest on my loans before it capitalizes in a couple months. Are the pros/cons I might not be thinking about for this? Similarly, are there pros/cons to going ahead and taking the loans out of deferment early or making early payments? If you’re ...

Is it misguided to spend my first year paying off this 80k as aggressively as possible (hopefully in a little over 1 year), and spend the rest...
