    By the way, I just happened across the main federal site for this:

    It says:
    I don't know whether that might help you, but if it might, that would be fantastic. You certainly earned the consideration!

    What has kept me out was the need to have 120 qualifying payments after October 2007. Now it looks like they're waiving that date. But they also require you to consolidate FFEL loans (which are Federal) to Direct first. Hoops, hoops, hoops.

    Thanks for the push, Steve. I need to stop procrastinating and whining and just go do it.

    Yeah, I guess I'm just more reluctant to hit the hot buttons after some recent blowups. I find those are way more fun when I'm not a part of them, lol.

    Hmm, and I suppose this particular thread isn't in Political Discussions.

    I didn't hear any whining. Based on everything you've said, you really did get a raw deal.

    I looked. As I mentioned, under the normal plan I was excluded. But the waiver includes time served before the program began. So, I’ve begun the process for consolidating my FFEPL loans into Direct Loans to see if I can then get them excused. I’ll let ya know.

    Now that you mention it, I never notice the sections, I really only read the thread titles in the "New Posts" column. And when I do search, I still only notice the thread titles. I guess I've just blocked the categories out over time. Weird.

    On the plus side, I could use that as my excuse for going off-topic often.
