Re: Student loans why don't some people pay them back?
said by dragonfly:it's peanuts compared to a mortgage.
I can afford to pay it back, but $300/mo for 15 years is quite a lot for anyone.
as well, had you not made that investment in yourself, instead of a decent job paying $55k/year, perhaps you would be pouring coffee for $25k/year...the ROI on your education is only a few years (factoring in your taxes, etc)...that's a pretty significant improvement.
quote:then you work to improve your marks, or you save up your own money and go (which is what you did, with student loans)...either way, you are better off.
Anyhow, the point being, I myself would not have qualified for the "free tuition" under the Nordic system due to a low GPA out of high school.
and good for you for going back to school and bettering yourself.
