    Does SAP reset as a graduate student?

    As an undergraduate, I became ineligible for federal aid due to maxing out my cumulative attempted credit hours (who knew starting college as a directionless 18 year old might be messy?) I'm thankful that my first graduate program acceptance letter came today, and that the program has offered full funding and stipend for the duration of my studies...but I will need to find a bit of extra aid to cover/refinance/push into deferment some higher interest debts that, while I can manage, will make my budget ultra-tight otherwise. My question is, does satisfactory academic progress (SAP - what the Fed uses to determine aid eligibility) reset as a graduate student/not carry over from undergrad?

    Federal Grad Plus Loan

    Anyone know the difference between the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan and the Fed Direct Grad PLUS Loan?? I've been researching and trying to understand the difference but I don't recall seeing much difference ?

    Federal hiring freeze

    For those interested in MPP/MPA programs, Trump just announced a hiring freeze for the federal government. Full details don't seem to be available just yet, but it seems to be indefinite and going into effect immediately. It's worth remembering this affects not just the federal government but also NGOs and policy-related private sector - those who would otherwise have been going for federal jobs will likely be applying to these positions instead, increasing demand and probably making it harder to find policy jobs. As decisions come out, it's also a factor to consider when deciding how much debt to take out. If you're considering public service loan forgiveness, it just got a whole lot more difficult to find a job that qualifies for it (and that's assuming the program will stay).

    Federal Jobs?

    Hi folks, I'm currently waiting to hear back from several agencies regarding summer work with the Feds, and I was wondering if anyone here had experience with the Parks or Forest Service, or the BLM. About how long did it take for them to get back to you? I'm coming up on 2 months for some of these applications, and am getting a little nervous about what I'll be doing come summer.
