Student Loan Debt: over $100,000.00
law school debt plus masters debt but no undergrad debt.
Here’s one for you. I was studying for a Masters at a law school in so. cal. withdrew due to illness.
They say I never withdrew and took the money for one class from student loan and the other class had private funding of their choice.
Now they say I have a balanced owed on private funding and will not re-enroll me in the program.
I am half way through at $20,000 under in student loans….
What do I do?
Let’s start with the obvious.
Do you have any proof that you provided them with notice of withdrawal? I can see their point if you just stopped going but most schools have a deadline at which you can withdraw without penalty.
It is a bit odd that one class was paid for by student loans and they billed you for the other class. How does that happen? Is that the way it normally works?
What is the name of the school so I can do some more research?
I admit, based on the limited details you have given me it is a bit perplexing.
