    And you will graduate with a law degree?  Poor baby, can't start at the top so you want a bailout?

    It's that sorta thinking that put our economy in the tank, the free lunch crowd.  And we wonder why third world countries can clean our plows?

      all I really ask is a lower interest rate, because the way all student loans are set up, you'll be paying on nothing but your interest for YEARS before getting to the actual balance.

      Also, like I said, the legal field is also experiencing job cuts, even the big firms. I was never setting out to get a high paying job. As sappy as it sounds, I really just want to help people and find something I enjoy doing. At this point, I'm not even convinced I want to take the bar.

      So don't talk to me like I'm just looking for a handout. And I'm sure Obama knows where I'm coming from considering he was practically in the same boat until he wrote two best-selling books.

    •  Oh, and my question doesn't just apply to (2+ / 0-)

      law students, it applies to every student who won't actually BE in school if/when his tax credit policy goes into action.
