A while back I consolidated my student loans with Graduate Leverage. I will be starting in a GPR in June. I called Graduate Leverage to see if I can extend my grace period for another year until I finish my residency. The person on the phone said I need to prove that I'm still a "student" in order to qualify. He also said don't worry, Graduate Leverage will be sending some stuff in the mail for me to fill out in mid April. Now, I have a classmate who's doing AEGD. He told me his lender, NelNet, advised him to fill out some forms to apply for student loan extension ASAP. So my main concerns are: Am I still consider a student while I'm in a GPR and Am I behind with the paper work right now to get that going?
