  1. excellent post.

    The taste of ramen noodles three meals a day will stay with you longer than your debt, believe me.

  2. In hindsight, I likely could have taken time off to work, but considering the volatility of the education/job market, I just wanted to finish ASAP. I didn’t want to put off a year of potentially earning a reasonable wage, to slave for a year at a low-paying job to earn a bit of extra coin in the short term. I also saved a considerable amount by going to a University-College (UCFV) for the first couple years, instead of launching straight into the higher tuition university environment. And my first year’s tuition and book expenses were covered by scholarships and savings.

  3. Interesting comments.

    With the benefit of hindsight, is there any way you could have graduated with less of a student loan? Did you have any money saved going into your degree? Did you consider taking a year off to save money? Just curious.
