Debt Total
« on: June 14, 2004, 12:21:08 PM »
I am just curious as to what kind of loan debt each of you will be facing upon graduation.

I have $25k in undergrad loans, and will be borrowing $40k/year to attend Hofstra, putting my total at $145k.

I am wondering if anyone else will be looking at $100k+ after graduation?

left undergrad with 10k in the bank. don't scoff it toook me 8 years to complete.

I think I will have about 12-13k of debt per year at USD. depends on how well I do and if I get another scholarship or if I transfer out.
