PSLF Student Loan Forgiveness - lsumatt
My wife has worked for a non-profit for over 10 years and has payed over 120 payments to her student loan. She appears to have 4 "Stafford" loans. She meets all the employment and payment qualifications for Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF), but the loan company claims the loan itself is not el...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - lsumatt
My wife has had the CSP for 3 years and just applied for the CSR. We didn’t know about the rule that you can only have one and she was rejected. At his point can she cancel the CSP and reapply for the CSR a week later? Or has she been flagged after just getting rejected? Again it has been 3 years...

re: GFCI outlets - lsumatt
I don't have any kids. I realize it is likely "regular" outlets that are connected to the GFCI and tripping it, but it doesn't seem like we have anything that uses an excessive amount of power. We didn't have this kind of trouble in December when we had Christmas lights turned on all over the hou...

GFCI outlets - lsumatt
I don’t know if this is the right board for this, but I have been having trouble with gfci outlets the last several months to the point where they go out daily. It isn’t the same one either, all 4 go out. I have never had problems before (house is 10 years old) and we aren’t plugging things in that ...

re: So what needs to happen with Bama for LSU to play on Thursday? - lsumatt
[quote]As far as not playing on Wednesday, the result of Bama and A&M has NOTHING to do with it. [/quote] This statement greatly contradicts: [quote]A&M losing gives LSU a safety net in that they would only need ONE of SC and UGA to lose to stay away from Wednesday. [/quote]...

re: Shareef Oneal decomits from Arizona - lsumatt
If he wanted his son to win a championship he could say, “use the extra scholarship on a shooting guard”. Maybe he wouldn’t do this but I could see a rich superstar who was confident they would get their playing time wanting to build an all star team. Common sense tells me the NCAA wouldn’t allow...

re: If we finish 4-2 can we make the NCAA tourney? - lsumatt
[quote]Aren't we an NIT lock already without losing out the remainder of our schedule, which is highly unlikely? We're inconsistent, but I don't see any scenario where we're not playing in the NIT at least.[/quote] No scenario? If we lose the rest of our games or even win one we would have a losi...
