His debt grows $130 a day, meaning his loan balance will exceed $2 million in two decades.After 25 years, Meru’s remaining balance will be forgiven at taxpayers’ expense." Paying $1590 per month for the next 25 years ~ $477,000 will almost cover the principle. His remaining debt will be forgiven and the burden will be placed on US taxpayers.

  7. I am going into my fourth year and did the first 3 years with 33, 24, and 30 credits respectively. I'm probably going to do 24 credits this year. In my first year I got a 3.7 GPA and in my last 2 years, I got 4.0s. I'm wondering if my lowest year gets dropped of while applying for the next cycle or do I have to complete 120 credits before I am eligible to drop my lowest my lowest year. Probably is a gamebreaker tbh Thanks!
