- the interest rate on my loans dropped about 3% for the next year. I guess the failing economy/high gas prices is good for more than reducing road accident fatalities
- I realized that I had just $8000 and change left of my student loans (started with about $22,000)
How did I get 2 degrees on $22,000?
- take only what you need. It's so easy and tempting to use your student loans for other purposes (like a new car). After all, the interest is usually lower than you'll get. It's even more tempting if you managed to get one of the deferred-interest loans
- work for a company that offers tuition reimbursement and take FULL advantage of it.
