I'll go out on a limb, here, since no one has mentioned this yet.

It seems to me that if you were able to establish a business at the age of 17 in which you made $50K a year, you must be a smart person with a lot of initiative and entrepreneurial skills.

Might you tap into whatever those talents are again...perhaps put school on hold temporarily...and use your skills to regenerate some of that income to tackle your current debt load? After you stabilize the situation, go back to school and finish.

Just a thought from a fellow entrepreneur who also withdrew from school for a short while for various reasons. It didn't kill me.
