Sallie Mae has done this nearly every single day for three weeks even though I faxed them enrollment verification for in-school deferment. Supposedly, it’s being processed. In other words, I don’t owe ‘til I drop out or graduate. You don’t get to blow my phone up all day because you’re incapable of processing a two-page fax in a timely fashion.
But as one rep explained, “It’s not harassment because you, like, owe money.”
Uh-huh. Google Sallie Mae’s history of hounding people until they pay – legitimately or not. And this is why you never, ever take out private student loans.
You know what would help stimulate the economy? Forgive student loan debt. Or at least let us go through some kind of modification.
Things like this exist in America, where you’re apparently nothing without a degree, and getting said degree costs you everything. Meanwhile, I keep telling them to process the paper and they promise to quit calling if I just give them a payment, y’know, just while we’re waiting on that deferment to process.
Loan sharking, kids. That’s pretty much what this is.
Mitt Romney claiming Americans should be able to achieve their dreams, just as long as they have the “right values” and the ability to afford it.
Yes, Mitt. Do tell us what “right values” you mean.
In other news, Congress passed a bill to keep student loan rates from doubling, plus an oft-spiked transportation bill that will keep millions working, and which did not include the Keystone XL Pipeline because Republicans removed it, and also renewed federal flood insurance. Essentially, for a day, the U.S. Congress worked.
And my twitter feed blew up because Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting divorced and Instagram was broken.
Pay attention, folks. Or else we’ll wind up with Mittens.
Finals week indeed.
Mitt Romney, speaking at Otterbein University in Ohio.
"At a ‘lecture’ for students at Otterbein University in Ohio today, Mitt Romney told students that, his friend, Jimmy John, started a business by borrowing $20,000 from his parents at a low interest rate. Romney suggested anyone in the audience could do the same."
Because EVERYONE’S parents have $20k just sitting around, amirite?
You know what a risk is these days? Going to college and hoping to all things holy you get a job that allows you to pay back student loans. Not everyone is able to sell a little stock here and there to pay tuition at an Ivy League school and not work.
The parking meter on campus judges me as inferior. Or something.
This can’t be a good omen for midterms…
Spotted at the University of Wyoming Student Union today.
First, what the hell does “Temparality” mean?
Second, redundant sign is redundant. The information desk has information? Holy shit, I thought that’s just where I bought concert tickets…
Third, I think my degree was just devalued before I even graduated.
