I was a dumb ass

    I let one of my student loans default.

    Now, I'm doing damage control with the rest of them to get forbearances and deferments.

    I contacted the place that has the defaulted loan and am waiting for a response.

    Anyone know how long it takes to remove the word "default" from one's record?

    Just a ballpark figure would be okay.

    On average about five years...but I think it depends on what country you are in...could be anywhere between 3 - 6 years

    That sounds more like a credit report than the financial aid report.

    I'm sorry, I didn't make it clear which report I meant.

    Just looking for another dumb ass that fixed their default and maybe could say about how long it took them to get rid of "default."

    White Dove, financial aid is an absolute mystery to me. Until it ends up in my account, I don't know what's going on. It's best to just call them.

    Faxed off two forbearance thingies and sent an e-mail to the owner of the defaulted one.

    You know how dangerous it is to default?

    It's like giving Shamus a piggyback ride for months.
