Some bitchy lady in the registrar's office insisted that a student deferment is only good for the weeks when class is in session. The "SCH" form asks two pieces of information: the dates of class attendance and the anticipated graduation date. This person decided that this was an "either/or" choice of the school, rather than that the government is looking for BOTH pieces of information.<i/>

can you imagine how many people got screwed over by this lady? How many students took her word for it? Someone should call for an all out audit in this situation.

This is really scary and just goes to show, that you should never take anyone at their word. investigate for yourself and collect information from different sources, and extrapolate the best possible answer.

Lady I, really wishes she knew then what she knows now. (maybe I should start a Student loan advice program. Or just send everyone this board.)

BTW...maybe we should re-name the board, How to get back at Sallie Mae without breaking the law! :)
