Loan Forgiveness

I was just wondering if anyone knows about loan forgiveness for SLPs. I have Stafford loans, $30,000 worth of Stafford loans! I've been reading about cancellation/forgiveness online but seeing as it is a government run program it is very confusing! :) Anyone successfully get rid of their loans?
Check out www.ibrinfo.org

Income based repayment allows you to consolidate all your loans, arrange a payment based on your income and an extended time to pay. If you are working in the public sector, you may qualify to have your loans completely forgiven after 10 years of payments.

I think the only government-run loan forgiveness program in our field is for SLP/AuDs who commit to working in a low-income school district. I'm a bit irritated that there isn't much help for those going into a medical setting -- that setting is also short on SLPs. One of my previous instructors, a medical-based SLP, works in 2 hospitals, is a consultant for long-term care facilities, and also works in a PT/SLP private practice... and this is combined with teaching at two universities. I'm not hinting that all medical SLPs are such workaholics but I doubt she'd be able to have so many positions if this shortage didn't exist.

Nope, that's not true. Here's a fact sheet (pdf) about the federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program. Scroll down to find "What types of public service jobs will qualify a borrow for loan forgiveness under this program." You'll find that anyone who works full time for 10 years in the schools (not just low income schools), for a non-profit agency, or as a health professional in a clinical setting, will qualify.
I got rid of my loans in about 3 years ($58k) by sticking to a tight budget, and continuing to live like a college student. It just takes a little effort.

I hope I get a job that I can afford 20k a year just towards loans!

Hi! I still have a year to go in my master's program but will definitely be around 50k in debt when all is said in done. I'd love to learn more about how you stuck to a tight budget & paid back your loans!!

Any tips or anything extra you found worked for you? Online resources that helped?

Any help would be appreciated!! One thing I've been doing is living at home with my parents so that's kind-of cut my costs! Though I have to live with my parents....

Best,
