Do you have any student loan debt?
Just paid mine off last year at 28 yrs old. Have about $30,000 more to go on my husbands'.
Yes and it angers me to even think about it
I will have $245,000 in debt by the time I finish school, husband has the same + the $360,000 management loan we will be entering into contract with = $850,000 which will be payed off in less than 5 years once out of school Good Deal if you ask me
I had 72k in debt coming out of school, and paid it off in about 11 years. Such a relief sending that last check...
I will have $40K from undergrad and, depending on the type of grad program I pursue, there may be $100K more! Poor decision making(read: parent pleasing)on my part. Had I pursued my current major two years earlier, I'd be in a better financial state.
Not yet but very soon
Yes, just finished my freshman year with $5,400 in student loans.
Nope. I went to jc for two years and lived at home and then transferred to a state university. My parents paid cash for my tuition and living expenses.
41k and still rising!
Thanks to my hard working parents I pay straight out of the pocket, therefore I'm debt free!
Thank goodness for scholarships.
Not yet, but I will in a few months.
Nope, I paid mine off years ago.
I sympathize with those of you who have them now. The loans are much, much larger amounts and the interest is too high.
Nope. My education was paid for by the government via Pell Grant and other grants. If you're poor enough to need student loans, you're probably poor enough to qualify for the Pell Grant. So... Yea.
Woo pell grant. I got that. Still had 25k in student loans.
Just about anyone can get loans. I don't qualify for any grants because my parents make a lot, but they don't factor in debt.
$20k. Just graduated almost a month ago... 5 months until repayment begins...
I envy the majority. $24k for bachelors, $25k for masters = $49k in debt to start out. Have it paid down to $38k now. Still working on it.
I got my bachelors for free, thanks DOD!
Lol not yet. Just waiting on it.
Yes but it's not mine. I'm paying off my kids' loans.
No,and I hope I don't acquire any when I go to college.I don't like being in debt, especially to the government.Besides, I'll be poor anyway,I don't need debt too.I'm not letting my parents pay,so if I don't get a scholarship,don't know what I'll do.
Work work work
Never had debt. I worked more than 40+ hours a week at multiple jobs while going to college so I could fully support myself.
Not a realistic option for most of us that need at least a 3.5 to apply for internships. Especially for those that are trying to get into medical school. :/
$20k left. I don't mind it either. It helped my credit score big time!
My dad was in the army
Yep. Wouldn't be so bad if there wasn't so much interest tacked on.
A little now, but it's well-worth the investment.
BS,MS & MBA
34+ years ago. Debt wasn't & option but night school was.
Only $30K worth and I'm working part time retail because we've sold our economy to china.
Well beyond that!
Any? Hahaha, I have ALL of the student loan debt. Every last bit.
Daughter does :(
Yep, just paid $341 towards one. It's like a second car note. :(
My wife just graduated. I'm estimating her payments around $750. It's like a second mortgage note.
All together 6,000. And I just passed my NCLEX (nursing boards). So I'm not doing too bad !
Got to start paying it back next month! ):
Nope, paid mine off years ago.
No, I was very fortunate to not have any student loans.
$20K and rising. It's in deferment, but I still pay my reg payment and any interest set to compound
I have the unfortunate luck I being the only one in my family whose parents couldn't pay them for me. Gonna pay a portion down early though, so there's that!
My son does though.
Ugh, yes. And adding to it still :-(
Not anymore, paid it all off.
I have enough student loan debt that I could have just bought a house instead of going to college. I'm not using my degree anyway
My parents have been paying for my classes, but decided to stop for my last year. Doing what I can to avoid getting loans!
I will starting next year.
Helping my kids with their college loans.
Yes! Just got it! Excited for college.
Yes, but we are very fortunate that my parents are paying for it
I am racking it up. Unfortunately.
Not much left :) not that I had all that much to start with.
Another year or so, and in done! Thank goodness!
