    I wonder how much student loans I'd have if I hadn't dropped out of highschool instead

    The application is simpler than I was expecting, thought there'd be more stupid gatekeeping hoops

    Thank you for posting this. I signed up for emails and didn't get anything about this yet. I applied. Hopefully, it goes thru. I'm just not sure how much of mine is in federal loans.

    I'm still uncertain the loan forgiveness will actually happen or if it will somehow get rug pulled by republican lawsuits aimed at federalist society "judges" or some shit
    but doesn't hurt to apply in case it does work out!

    yes, it should take you to a confirmation page and also send you a confirmation email with the same information. Try turning off adblockers noscripts etc. and submitting the info again.

    My expectations are low and I've still been disappointed. Compared to private loans the federal loans can be deferred by saying "new phone, who this?" or just telling the person calling you to fuck off. I've had late fees at Blockbuster pursued more aggressively. Personally it only accounts for like $4,000 of my loans which is not nothing but also pales in comparison to private loans. Oh wait, whooops turns out that isn't even going to happen because Brandon backed down out of fear that Republicans might not invite him to their birthday party where they're going to have ice cream cake and not one but two of the Power Rangers.

    It's Biden.

    The "don't use political nicknames, ever" rule in D&D is legitimately the second best mod rule I've ever seen on any forum (the first was the Glorious Edict, obv.)

    Oh I know who they're referring to, it's more that there's only one group of people who call him Brandon and oft serves as a "hidden" call sign for others of their ilk. So when I see someone use it...

    Same with people who use phrases like "virtue signaling" and "PC (politically correct)".

    The Brandon thing is like when you first read Romeo and Juliet in jr high and you and your stupid friends think it’s suuuuuuuper clever to bite your thumb at people.

    Saying this as someone who thinks using the nickname is annoying and dumb

    Lol if you think using a dumb nickname from memes is the same as siding with fascists

    you can't just say "leftists did it" when "Dark Brandon" is all over the left/centrist sphere. like it's completely decoupled from everything at this point. it's impossible to trace where anyone started hearing shit. it's wholly unhinged. worst timeline.

    If they actually waive 20k of my student loans, which I think I qualify for, I'm just fucking paying the rest off and be done with it.

    People who say "Let's Go Brandon" think they're being clever and edgy, but they prefer to feel like they're being transgressive instead of grappling with their own cowardice to speak plainly about their beliefs.

    Which is unsurprising, when you consider how unwilling conservative voters are to grapple with the reality of the positions of the politicians they support.

    EDIT: Perhaps "grapple with" is not the right term, because plenty of conservatives understand exactly what the actual stakes and goals are. But they play this "game" because then there's a veneer of deniability even though it's transparent what they're doing, but they still act outraged and refuse to be held responsible for supporting those goals.

    Is it a lot?

    I bet it's too much

    I hate the interest on my car bad enough but at least that'll be paid off winter of '23

    The COLA for my disability this year is actually going to be decent too, can't wait for them to blame inflation on my small raise. Or just take it all in Medicare premiums somehow.

    luckily i just went to community college, got pretty close to finishing my AA before i had to drop out, but it's still pretty considerable given my yearly income of, hold on lemme gather my receipts... adjusting my little transparent green visor, one moment... approximately zero monies.

    You know what sucks is a loan where you'll be paying 70 some percent of the principal in interest in total over the length of the term

    I imagine it's much worse with student loans given the terms and principles involved

    It's a shame I would probably really enjoy going to school to learn things.

    Part of the fun of it for them is being able to give a smug grin and be like "nooo, what do you mean, you're the only one who brought up Biden"

    Let me be clear here, fuck Joe Biden.

    Dude does not get credit for a half measure solving a problem he created with the bankruptcy bill and then walking back that solution for millions of people.

    Also, you know, he's a rapist a racist and can be bought off with an AIG windbreaker.

    NGL, I forgot "Brandon" was Biden's nickname and initially thought the program had been cancelled by a vote in Congress due to an unwhipped Democrat.

    As for me, I have no student debt, despite working on a Bachelors for... nearly 10 years, now. The perks of living in a place with a vigorous student + labor movement and having a nearly-crippling anxiety disorder, I guess.

    ETA: Any American who wants to study and hasn't started yet, come to Montreal! Or Sherbrooke! Get yourself registered as a permanent resident, and you pay the cheapest rates per-credit in the province! Right now, they're less than a hundred bucks per credit by law, but that amount might increase as the legislature decides.
