Maria John, you bring up a good point that this can be complicated & that its tough to find a job. Be sure to read the new blog I wrote for this site about job interviews, I think you'll be surprised at some of the mistakes that Millennials make when they try to get a job.

You said it right, Curtman! My son graduated debt free with a journalism degree and it took off a lot of pressure when he was looking for an entry level job in his field. He didn't have to worry about student loans, which allowed him to take a lower paying job that had the potential to turn into something much more!

You are right, I'm married to a born spender and I'm a born saver. We had a lot of work to do but we finally came together on money matters. It's so much better to have peace and harmony rather than throwing rolls at each other during dinner! LOL>

I can see your point, Curtman40. I've advised my own kids to keep their student loan to 10K or less through a variety of work study programs, military service, CLEP testing, scholarships (it's a part time job with them) and one child even took a year off between her soph and jr year at Columbia to work, then sold her car to pay for college. It won't be the same path for every student, as they are different, but it's worth looking at all the options!

My most "extreme" vacation was last year when I took a flight in an F-15 E Strike Eagle fighter jet! What is your idea of an extreme vacation?

There's a lot of freedom in paying off those student loans!
