The “Student Loan Management Organization” aka Sallie Mae is a quasi-governmental entity giving out (overpriced) loans to college students
Cole is saying that the salary he would get from getting a job after graduating law school would just be spent on paying back his student loans
COLE: Post-law jobs these days don’t even pay enough to cover the loans (trust me!)
