Consolidating law school loans
If you haven’t yet applied for, or chosen, your law school, that’s a good thing.
More and more schools are offering loan repayment assistance programs.
Some of these programs provide a powerful incentive for students to pursue their dreams — like working for underserved populations — that might provide plenty of motivation but not a lot of money.
This valuable benefit could make it possible for you to work in a lower-paying job that services the underserved, while still being able to manage your hefty student loans.
Some of these programs will even get part of your loan balances forgiven.
There are also a variety of federal repayment programs and specialized loan repayment assistance programs (LRAPs) and loan forgiveness programs.
