Attornies’ Student Loans

As an attorney you have worked hard to get where you are today! You have completed an undergraduate degree and have competed successfully to get into Law School and worked very hard to come out the other end as an Attorney! And now that you are out the other end, you have found out that it is not all roses and that you have brought along the following College problem i.e. STUDENT LOAN DEBT!

Only 15% of higher education students are in GRADUATE programs yet they account for 40% of federal student loans issued each year! i.e. $37,000,000,000 per year1

The average Law School debt, that includes undergraduate degree, is $145,5502

94% of law school graduates have a median debt larger than their income and the median debt to income ratio is 1.86

These statistics make attorneys prime candidates for Income Driven Repayment plans.

90% of borrowers graduating with six-figure student loan debt are graduate students NOT undergraduate students.3

Here are some questions to ask yourself…

  • Are your Federal student loans larger than your income?
  • Do you feel overwhelmed by your monthly student loan payments?
  • Do you feel that you can’t move forward with your life because of the amount of student debt hanging over you?
  • Are your plans for a home and family on hold because of student loan debt?
  • Do you feel that you will NEVER be able to pay your student loans off?
  • Do you feel panicked / frustrated that here is no solution to your student loan problem?

Then you have come to the right place!
