A few options for student loan forgiveness

Dear Liz: I have a rather ugly student loan predicament. You mentioned "the possibility of forgiveness" in a recent column. I feel very strongly that I am deserving (if I dare use that word) of partial or full forgiveness of my undergraduate loans, although the loans from my graduate studies sting quite a bit too. I am not sure whom to contact to tell my story. Do I ask my lender, or do I contact the federal government education department? I get beyond frustrated talking to my lender, as they have employees who can only read from a script and can never help with particular issues. Answer: You don't win federal student loan forgiveness with an effective sob story. You get it...
