Why Were You “Forgiven” But Not Me?

An anonymous poster vents about not being "forgiven", where it comes to student loans.



How in the world did some of you get your loans forgiven, doctors?

I’m happy for you that you did, but how come because I emphasized paying them off, and held off on purchasing homes and other life things, I don’t get mine forgiven?

Is there something that I’m missing?

Is there a double standard?

Are we rewarding only those who haven’t paid off their loans yet? And those who are fresh out?

What is the exact process by which this happens?

We should be having this conversation out loud.
