Lost My Job Cause I Got Sick

Did this happen to you? Went out sick, my bosses boss replaced me within a week, replacement broke into my office and removed all my stuff. HR said they would find me a comparable position in the company when I return. After 4 weeks I’m ready to return with a doctor’s note ready for full duty and they don’t have a job for me! They’re not telling me anything else. YANML but do I need one? I’m a single parent of a teenager in NYC. Thanks. Throwaway: NervisPervis@gmail.com

Question: If length of time in grad school exceeds state statute of limitations on original loan, does this mean the loan will discharge itself before it can be collected? [more inside]
