those taking on hefty student loans…?
I am going to be in college next year as a freshman, however my parents are continuously pushing for me to stay in state because it will save “30 thousand dollars.” The way I look at it is, you only go to college once. I am willing to take on student loans, and my parents are willing to pay roughly half, maybe a bit less, of what the college costs (32k per year.) While I have already applied for numerous scholarships, I know taking on student loans is inescapable. So the point of my question arises; coming out of college with a job that pays say, 85,000$ p/year, is it reasonable to pay off student loans equaling 60,000$ with other necessities such as car insurance, housing, food, etc. to still worry about?
