  1. Sometimes you just gotta tell your story. Here’s how I managed to borrow
    $65,000 of student loans. 

  2. Fortunately, my undergrad loans were less than $20k. They really should’ve
    been less than that, but I got a lot of bad advice from a lot of foolish
    people, but I am glad I learned that lesson early. I have been making extra
    payments, but I haven’t set a specific deadline, since I’m not consistent.

    I was considering grad school but decided not to due to cost because I
    preferred to pay out of pocket. Fortunately, right around this time, I
    finally got a decent job so no longer felt pressured to get an additional
    degree.

    What I’m trying to figure out now is how to determine how to make payments
    to reduce and potentially eliminate interest. I’ve noticed that a lot less
    goes to interest when I make extra payments, but I haven’t figured out the
    trick to it. My pastor has been talking about doing this for all loans, but
    I haven’t actually talked to a professional about my loans specificallly.
    For now, I’m focusing on my student loans, since that’s my highest interest
    rate.

  3. I had to go back too because my degree was useless. Luckily, it was a cert
    so my BS will be be covered my grants and scholarships.

  4. How much can you take out in student loans Your first year in college ,as a
    freshman ?
