HIGHER EDUCATION BUBBLE UPDATE: 25 And Deep In Debt: My Experience.
At 25 years old, I have $188,307.22 in student debt, all of which is my sole financial responsibility.
That exorbitant number was abetted by easy lending with a co-signer, negligence and lack of awareness, over-borrowing and the exponential growth of tuition.
I work both a full-time and part-time job, and abide by a strict budget. Yet, I still sleep in my parent’s basement and am dependent for food, gas and health insurance.
I am told I am not alone.
Sadly, not at all. But others can be saved from this fate, at very little expense.
