Re: SallieMae - late payments

Certainly I don't mean to nitpick, but where are you getting that all the lates are to be removed? Every federal student loan site I've seen says that "the default staus is removed", but there is nothing that says that all the lates leading up to the default will automatically come off as well.

There are stories of specific lenders making the call to remove the lates, but there's no federal rule that says that they have to. YMMV, depending on your lender.
