Just 0.5 percent of public service worker applicants are getting their student loans forgiven. Here’s how you can be one of them

You took out student loans to go to college, and then you started a career in public service, as a police officer, a teacher, a nurse, a social worker.  

Good news: The government wants to reward you for your service. After 10 years, you could be eligible for student loan forgiveness, wiping out an average of $58,000 in loan debt.

Good news, that is, if you're one of the 206 people who have qualified for the federal program. Not so much if you're one of the 41,000 others who have applied and been denied.
