I am in process of figuring out the best way to go about paying off my student loans--which is A LOT from both undergrad and PA school. I run into the fork in the road of (A) committing to 10 years working for not for companies to receive the Public Service Loan Forgiveness or (B) consolidating my loan outside of the federal government for a much lower overall interest rate and make payments over a longer period of time.
Is there anyone here who has entered into the Public Service Loan Forgiveness option? And if you have, what are the pros, cons, challenges or limitations to this? I would really like your feedback.
If anyone has any other loan repayment advice, I'd appreciate that as well!
I recently got accepted to PA school and am over the moon! Unfortunately I am running into some issues obtaining financial aid as an F-1 student without a US citizen or permanent resident as a co-signer. Any insights from international students before me and the scholarships/ loans they recommend would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you so much!
I have been considering the military after I graduate PA school because I have a significant amount of debt and I think it would be a great experience. Can someone explain the process of joining the National Guard as a PA with no previous military experience? Also, what is the commitment and role of a PA in the guard? Are there significant benefits for loan repayment? I would rather hear this first from someone who has been in this situation rather than a recruiter.
