Thank you for all of your advice and suggestions. I am pretty sure things haven't changed much in a year.

Such a claim exists only in your mind. Read other people posts more carefully, will you?

Yeah, even people who will call others trash for not repaying their student loans (as it violates a contract) have no problem breaking work contracts in Taiwan.

The US government tends to stick to the terms of THEIR side of the contract much more rigidly than the average cram school employer in Taiwan.

Are we really debating the merits of skipping out on your student loans? Way to screw over people in need of loans down the line...
This is a highly proper signature.

If I recall that discussion, it wasn't breaking a contract that was the issue, but costing other people money.

Not gonna search through the thread, but there were various posters with various viewpoints. One of which, was that you are breaking a contract. One such poster taking that angel had already posted very prolifically on this forum about breaking a contract with a buxiban, and when called out about the hypocrisy, continued to justify it.

But whatev, didnt really mean to drag up the old thread...was just reaffirming most people here are not against breaking a buxiban contract, thats all.
