Cry me a river my young student friends. My children ALL graduated with LESS than 5000
in student debt, yet all graduated with top honors in Finance (2) and Chemistry (2) degrees. Gosh how did they do that???? By going to state universities and working while they were in school. My wife and I helped by paying for their car insurance and providing 150 a month for fuel.

If you want to attend some expensive, elite university, go ahaed but in my opinion you should do so on your OWN dime instead of expecting your fellow citizens to pay for it with unrealistic student loan programs that end up raping the tax payer when YOU default.
