School Loans (Again)

https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/s...110811668.html



and this is why they can't pay back their loans.


Personally, i currently revel in the fact that these idiots are drowning in debt and are probably going to die with it because of their decisions. These are the same kids with "FSU" framed license plates repping their colleges. As if they give a **** about the students.

The "school spirit" bothers the hell out of me. When I was in college I used to cringe at the kids wearing/buying school apparel. First off, is nothing like paying to be a walking billboard. Second, how ****ing brainwashed are you to be so in love with the place that is clearly taking us (most of us) for a ride.

The kids doing sports are the worst culprits of this, literally head to toe in school apparel, no matter where they go or what are doing

You mean, like scholarship athletes that are getting their education for free for representing the school in their chosen sport?

Damn them for wearing school logos on their clothes.

Those would be an exception.

No joke, half my team was international students. They only kept us Americans on the team, because of some rule/legal reason, where they have to have a certain % of U.S. citizens. That way coaches won't stack the teams entirely with brazilians.

A graduate of Texas A&M University-Commerce, Eric Hazard would receive a check of $4,000 to $5,000 after the lender paid the school for tuition. The checks "were celebrated across the campus as almost like a bonus for being a college kid," he recalled. "[Students] would go directly to the bank to cash it. I bought electronics for my dorm room and drinks were on me for a month or two. In an abstract way, I knew I would have to pay it back. But you don't have a timeline in your mind about what that was going to look like. I just knew it would happen later."

Undergraduates finishing college in 2014 owed an average of $28,950 in student debt, the result of loans taken out to cover both tuition and living expenses.
This is the thing that kills me... the average student owes less money than the cost of buying a new Honda Accord and somehow "students are drowning in student loan debt" is a recurring theme in the media?? They should be paying this **** off in 3-5 years, not pretending like college is an expense that is so high that these kids need to have the debt they voluntarily incurred forgiven by the government.

/rant off

so you are judging an entire country of college graduates based on one click bait article? i am one of those that have been paying off student loans for 10 years (give or take due to deferment)
going to college for me was prob a mistake as i could have done a lot more with the money i am paying every month but i dont regret it because it was a great experience and i was the FIRST ever in my
immediate and extended family that went to college and to a top school on top of that. having said that, in the beginning it was very tough to pay the loans because of low paying jobs. i came into the economy
when things were just about to get tough. i have always paid my loans on time so i have no issues there. i dont necessariy believe that loans needs to be waived but i do believe the following.

if Wall Street can get bailed out and given federal loans at 0% interest then why cant they do with that people paying student loans. how do you justify free money to wall street but not to your own citizens?
i would love a 0% rate for the next 3 years. though i will prob be done before then.

its funny how people in their self righterousness forget that back in the day you could go to college while working a regular job and pay out of pocket. college costs have risen exponentially while the avg economy of the
american household has stagnated if not dropped.

this is not such a simple issue as saying "stupid kids are dumb" but i guess everything is easier when you just point a finger and the politicians continue to bend us over.
