A quick definition of class suit:

A class suit, also known as a class action, is a type of lawsuit where one person or a small group of people can represent a larger group of people who have similar legal issues. This is helpful when it would be too difficult for each person to file their own lawsuit. The court must approve the class action and make sure that the representative person or group will protect the interests of everyone in the larger group. This type of lawsuit is used to make sure that everyone who is affected by a legal issue has a chance to have their voice heard in court.

A more thorough explanation:

A class suit, also known as a class action, is a type of lawsuit where a single person or a small group of people represent the interests of a larger group. This is done when it is impractical for each individual in the group to file a separate lawsuit.

For example, if a company sells a defective product that harms many people, those people can file a class action lawsuit against the company. The court will authorize a representative to act on behalf of all the people affected by the defective product. This saves time and money for everyone involved.

There are several requirements for a class action lawsuit to be maintained, including a large enough group of people, common legal or factual questions, typical claims or defenses, and adequate representation for the class.

Overall, a class suit is a way for a group of people to seek justice and compensation for harm caused by a company or organization.

I mean fuck it right. Like, maybe they can help somehow. Probably they can't but if the alternative is "i dont go to gulc" who cares

Idk I doubt they can give you 10k cash, lmao, but who knows!
Others will disagree, but max out a credit card if you have to do so.
It's 10K. Not 100K.

10K at 21.51% interest. Lol
19:47
Yeah I would definitely disagree. Without family help when could they realistically pay that off?

If someone can live below the student budget at GULC loans could cover an extra $10K, but Grad PLUS loans still amount to $2 in repayment for every $1 borrowed on a 10-year plan at current interest rates. Not a choice to make lightly.
