<<akk... this is getting a little depressing. I think I'll go lick my wounds... still recovering from the post telling me not to count on having a job at graduation...

One of the difficulties of this medium is that it's hard not to make assumptions and interpretations based on what people write, and it's very easy for those guesses to be wrong, even if made in good faith.

So please don't be put off by such remarks. In my view it is extremely valuable for undergrads to get an earful of the consequences of student loan debt on people's lives. Learning of the problems can help people make better decisions for themselves.


Thanks for you recent grads who've shared your experiences with managing debt while going through school.
