Sallie mae stopped consolidating loans
This was absurd so I called the international Sallie Mae and tried to plea and negotiate a lower realistic payment. With there being no teaching jobs in NJ and my girlfriend having a teaching degree, she is pretty much not going to be able to pay back this loan.
We had visited a bankruptcy lawyer today and this is the info we got.
The parents made too much money so she could not get student loans.
THe school (Montclair State University) tricked her into getting "private student loans" because she had no co-signer.
The risk of defaulting on private student loans remains extremely high, and if I can only stress one thing to you, it’s that this is no laughing matter. Because private student loan defaults are likely to not only destroy your credit, making it literally impossible to pass a credit check of any sort, but they’ll also hurt your ability to get a mortgage, qualify for a great job, rent a home or apartment, and they’ll open you up to all sorts of collection activities from debt collectors, who are basically guaranteed to be much more aggressive (and obnoxious) than your current student loan servicer.
While I was previously confidant that President Trump’s Student Loan Reform Plan would include some sort of assistance for private student loan holders, I’ve lost my faith in the new President’s resolve to tackle the student loan crisis, and I no longer think this is a realistic hope.

I was going to go to graduate school, become an elementary school teacher, work in a high-needs public school for five years, and have the rest of my federal debt forgiven. If I stuck with the plan, I didn’t need to worry about those loans at all. We cannot reduce, amend or discontinue the deduction without written authorization from the U. Between paying for both my rent and living expenses, and saving a little bit of cash for going out, it felt like I had nothing left over for my student loan payments.
About a year ago, Sallie Mae announced that it would be splitting up into two separate companies, Sallie Mae and Navient student loans.
Sallie Mae has continued to provide banking services for consumers including private student loans, insurance products, and credit cards.
Of course, life didn’t go as smoothly as I had envisioned as an 18-year-old. Fortunately, I had a six-month grace period before I had to start repaying my loans after graduating and I was confident something would turn up.
This became glaringly apparent 10 years later, when I received an email from the HR department at my company: We are commanded to immediately remit 15% of your disposable pay to the U. But six months later, the only career-related job I’d found was an unpaid internship at a small literary agency. I was also broke and about ,000 in debt to the U. So, while I tried to figure out what career I wanted to pursue, I went back to serving to pay the rent.
