Me. I'm keeping them in deferment. I can't afford the payment right now.

One of my friends says she's not going to pay when she finishes her master's. She's already 40k in the hole. They can put a lien on your house so it's not a good idea.

What kind of degree did you get? How much in loans did you have

I got mine down to where I only had about 1,200. left to pay. Then I just kept putting it off (for a good while). Finally, a few years ago they just took my tax refund to pay the remaining balance off.
Your friend can decide she's not going to pay her loans... But one way or another, they will get their money. I know they will take your tax refund, pretty sure they can put a lien on your home/personal property, and if I'm not mistaken they may be able to garnish a certain % of your wages until it's paid off.
EDIT... Sorry, also meant to quote the person a few comments above mine..

There are hundreds of forgiveness programs. Two of my son's worked at places that granted forgiveness. One worked for the Boys and Girls Club of America and the other worked for the Vistas Corp of America. Their salaries weren't great but after a year or so, their debt was wiped clean.

I pay mine. $600 a month. I put them in deferment for a couple months when we moved and i was looking for a job. And probably will again when dh finishes grad school and we move to wherever he gets a job. We will be putting our tax return as well as his back-pay towards them this spring which will help.
