When I graduate I'm going to have about $200k in student loans ($35,000 private from shittybank, the rest subsidized, unsubsidized, and Graduate PLUS). I go to a strong regional T3 and just landed a sweet summer through academic year job through an OCI. I'm in the top 33% of my class. Assuming I land a marginally decent job upon graduation, will I survive? Or will I have to rent a cardboard box behind Kmart?
I just want to know that I'm not alone. That other people in my situation don't end up in boxes or lean-tos or in bad apartments their entire lives. It's godawful scary. Right now, if I dropped out, my loan payments would be $1100 a month. Good lordy.
