What if you took out a sallie mae loan and the money really did not go to higher education… only for odds and ends and surgery. Is it still considered a student loan in that situation. And if not, would it be best to file bankruptcy including this loan.
Unfortunately this isn’t the first time I’ve heard this same situation. The problem is that you can use your Sallie Mae loan for anything that is school related and some people don’t. That doesn’t mean you then get to treat the loan in a way other than what was agreed to. The ultimate issue here is going to be the master loan documents you signed and the fact that student loans are not dischargeable in bankruptcy.
It’s still a student loan, even though you decided to use it for other things. I’m sorry I don’t have better news for you.
