There has been a lot of much needed attention given to “debt” these past few months.
No doubt Oprah and her “debt diet” has sparked much of the spotlight but it is an especially important concept for prospective college students to grasp. There was a recent article on Yahoo News entitled “The Debt-for-Diploma Crunch” that outlined how those who are in their 20 and 30 somethings are finding it impossible to get ahead because of their student loans. Even worse, college tuition is on the rise and will continue to rise. Financial aid has never been more important! College loans can set you back long after you have earned your degree. This leaves young families with no extra money to set aside for a financial cushion.
