Back in 2003 I had just finished medical school and I was starting residency and with the transition of going from one part of life to another as well as moving I dropped the ball on deferring my student loans. It was in March of 2003 and I lost track of things and I have a 90 day late mark against me. I believe the SOL is 5 years for IL and 6 years for NY which would mean that they will stay on for another 6 months correct? Also, is it even worth my time to send a Goodwill letter asking them to remove the mark. I have since consolidated my loans so they are with another lender and have been since October of 2004.
