i have $15,647 in my undergrad student loans. if i pay the minimum each time i will not pay it off until my birthday on 2020 plus i will have paid an extra 7 grand in interest. Fuck that just made me realize how expensive that piece of paper was and it is still fucking hard for me to get a "real" job. i don't even want to think about my MBA
i had to take out 20k and ill have to every year, i heard its easy to pay back, i forget the exact stats but i guess u pa like 50 bucks at a time and if u pay more it helps you out, so it might take a while but i guess its pretty simple assuming you have a solid job by that point
hopefully i wont be down too much. im trying to avoid loans. i have been saving money since i was 12 for college and raked up about 8g's, and so far i think its going to work out. summer job to add to that
i haven't gotten to college yet and I'm torn between going to a (relatively cheap) school or going to the more expensive school. The one is about $5000 more per year, so that's $20,000 more after 4 years. Of course, the average income is much higher for graduates at that school. Hopefully, I'll be able to get some loans that I don't have to start paying off until after I graduate (Stafford, for example)
but yeah, it's a fun topic to think about.

by myself after 3 years of college i'm 7 grand in the hole, even with a lot of scholarships and other aid. next year i'm starting optometry school, which = 80,000 more in 4 years. fortunately the starting salary is at least that much.
I gout out with about 15K, and i am paying it back really slowly. But looking back on it, take full advantage of student loans if you need a new car or something. I pay 2.3% interest which is better than any other rate you will have in your life. Get stafford loans to pay tuition and Gov. subsidised for living and other sweet shit. I wish i would have bought a sled and a dirtbike with my student loans.
i work full time year round along with being a full time student, and have got lucky with Scholarships for being clever, should get a rugby one ( i was a finalist) and some luckily just because the government is nice. I have about 4 g of student loans but i live at home still to so that helps
RIP-my ACL, MCL, Meniscus, and tendon in neck...oh and my season, job, trip to New Zealand...etc
To have a great adventure and survive requires good judgment. Good judgment comes from experience. And experience, of course, is the result of poor judgment
ill be 20-30,000 by the end of my degree. School is fucking expensive, if you don't know what you want to do then dont go yet. Its a waste of cash. I have spent 3 years deciding what i want to do and now i have another 3 left. I pissed away all the money i had for school and now im going to be on loans for my last 3 years.
