After seeing many Facebook posts regarding the denial, I too finally received mine.
ED has determined that your application is ineligible for relief based on review of the facts of your claim and the regulatory criteria for relief; this decision means that your Direct Loans will not be discharged.
Each topic states failed to state a legal claim and insufficient evidence, and that:
We reviewed evidence provided by you and other borrowers who attended your school. Additionally, we considered evidence gathered from the following sources:
IA Attorney General’s Office
IL Attorney General’s Office
CO Attorney General’s Office
Evidence obtained by the Department in conjunction with its regular oversight activities
Senate Hearing Testimony of EDMC career services adviser before the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (September 30, 2010)
Materials, including publicly available securities filings, prepared by Education Management Corporation
What are the next steps? Sure we can respond for reconsideration to BorrowerDefense@ed.gov. Has anyone gotten an approval, or are they just denying thousands upon thousands.
