The Big Payback


Remember that your student loans are real loans, just like your car loan, your credit card or (if you have one) your mortgage.  Your student loans must be repaid even if you don’t get the job you want after graduation, or if you don’t finish your degree. Student loan payments should only be a small part of your starting salary after school ends.  Keep your future salary in mind when borrowing, so that repayment is not an excessive burden.
