Here is the link for the GW letter examples.
I think her best bet is to call the loaners and discuss a payment plan ASAP. She has to figure out what she can pay monthly and get serious about repayment. Most of my lawyer friends had over $250K in school loans and managed to pay it back in time by being responsible and having autopays lined up for each account.
I personally don't think now is the time for her to ask for forgiveness or loan reductions. She is already asking for leniency with the GW letters. She has just entered the work force and it will be an adjustment but she should be able to manage. That's just my opinion though, i'm sure others will chip in with theirs.
Best of luck to your awesome amazing friend!
If they're federal loans, looking at the income based repayment program is the best option. It's a fantastic tool and it's very easy to enroll.
Also, a great tool to have in the student loan repayment arsenal is this spreadsheet: https://www.vertex42.com/Calculators/debt-reduction-calculator.html. I've seen it floating around these forums for a while and I use it myself. It's a great way to view what and how your payments do to the overall balance over time.
