If they do end up offering this benefit, a word of advice:
Before signing, be sure that you understand the tax implications. I applied for student loan repayment a few years ago and was shocked to find that the federal government taxes it’s own benefit. So if you get $10,000 that year, that amount is considered income. Uncle Sam will tax you on the $10K and withhold just like regular income, so you will only get about $6K paid directly to the lender.
