What Others Said

“My parents have saved a lot of money to pay for college so I do not have to come out with student loans. I understand how lucky I am that this is the case.”
Jen
University of Pittsburgh
$4,000 in bank account
$0 in student loans

“I’m graduating a year early to try and save some money because I still have medical school to go to. I’m very fortunate I got the amount of scholarships I did, but I still have a lot of debt already.”
Kayla
Senior at Chatham University
$3,000 in the bank
$45,000 in student loans

“The 120,000 doesn’t even include my interest rate. I’m going to be paying off this loan until I’m 64 years old.”
Hannah
University of Pittsburgh
$525 in the bank
$120,000 in student loans

“I get free tuition because my parent is a faculty member, (which) is why I chose to attend Pitt — to avoid crippling debt.”
