While Sallie Mae may have been listed as a creditor in your bankruptcy, your attorney would have most likely have had to file an adversary proceeding to attempt to get a discharge of the debt. That is unless the debt was a private student loan and your school or disbursement was non-conforming, as I describe in this article.
If you feel all or part of your loan was eligible for a discharge, you should contact your bankruptcy attorney to discuss a strategy for going back and dealing with this debt.
