Like I said TJ, I agree with you to a point, but a family should not have to turn upside down to send a kid to college when there are more sustainable options.
$160,000 over 30 years (the now typical repayment period when you get over 5 digits, from what I understand) adds up to just over $400 a month in repayment...without adding in interest.
Oh it's a lot of money, no doubt.
Idk, its a tough one, if you really want to go to school somewhere, and it would be a good school for your field of choice, then money should not matter. That's my way of thinking.
The key is actually knowing what you want to do, I have friends are over 100k in school debt and don't want to do anything with their degree. THAT is a waste of money
