You know, I hate how expensive getting an education is in the US. I want to become a doctor, but guess what? I cant afford med school unless I put myself in thousands of dollars of debt that will take me years and years and years to pay off. So instead I work at some crappy state job, not furthering my education because I have a family to take care of and it would be literally impossible to pay for an education while taking care of my family. I feel like the government is making education so expensive on purpose in order to keep all of its citizens uneducated and easy to manipulate and control.

A big part of this, and please don't turn this directly into an insult because I do not mean it that way, is laziness. I went to college, and got my masters degree just a little while ago. My debt is a whopping 6300 bucks I will have paid off within the year. Why? Because despite going to school full time and having a family, I also have a job.

I was literally, LITERALLY, the only student I know of who constantly had a job every trimester. Everyone else would have a job and quit, or lose it, or never got one to begin with. And THAT is how you rack up debt. Because without a job you need a loan to cover every cig, every bite of food, every shower, etc.

Again, this is not an attack. Just have a job, any job no matter how crummy, and you will end up saving quite a bit in the long run.

I should also note I went to Community College, which does affect price. Obviously Burger King won't cover a Ivy League price tag but at least you will have some moolah in your pocket.

There's always new hires we have at my company who complain about their student loans. I feel weird because when I was born my parents started an education fund for me and I didn't have to pay anything during school. Same for my brother.

I strongly feel that if you plan well enough for anything that you won't have a problem. 19 years to save up 30k-50k isn't that bad. Interest is a powerful thing. Set up a fund for family and friends to pay into for your birthdays or holidays.

It's the exact same thing my parents did, and I plan to do the same thing for my children.

After I'm done with law school I'll probably be about $60k in debt.
Not too bad I suppose. Be able to pay it off fast.

Is this were people from the EU claim their education is free? While spending the rest of their lives paying 20% VAT and a 50% marginal income tax?

Cause that seems to come up a lot....

I work full time shifts as an electrician in a factory, whilst attending University part time (to obtain a degree in Electrical Engineering). I don't have any debt but that's because my life currently consists of working all day (hoping that i wont have to stay late) followed by hours of work/revision every night.

I'm sick of hearing people doing degrees in History, Geography, Sociology complain about how hard they've got it. You should try a week in my shoes...

I love how everyone is posting about how low their debts are. The point is - There should be no debt to begin with.
