student loans

I had a student loan dating 1997, I went back to school in 2005. I have declared bancruptcy and thought the loan from 1997 would be discharged as I am not profiting from that course. The bank states that my end of study date is 2005, therefore I am still responsible for the 1997 loan, Is this correct?

Unfortunately the bank is correct. By returning to school you re-set the clock on all your student loans and therefore you would not have met the criteria for the 7 year rule. As a result your student loans will not be cleared by the filing of a bankruptcy.
