Students must be credit-worthy to borrow the "expenses" portion beyond tuition and books at any decent school. Taking on loans does not indicate someone is a "bandit" to me... if they have good credit and income why would they sacrifice that for a measely extra 30% max in living expenses? I'm sure some idiots do, but its non-dischargeable so even the few that are ignorant of that fact will not profit.|
Also - and especially since - they're working on doubling student loan interest rates... I think you can feel pretty comfortable in the belief that there will be no student loan forgiveness.
