Average amount of money students have to pay back for loans? Posted on 07-30-2005

I go to a pretty cheap institution and I am going into my third year. However this year they didnt give me enough grant to pay for it all. I had to get a pretty big loan to cover it. How much do yall think students have to end up paying back after school?

Depends on how long you have to pay on it. Get it set up to where you only owe ****.XX(small amount) for X,****,****,****(long amount of) years.

whooaa, I don't even wanna think about it. :???: Considering that I'll have one more year of college left after this one coming up. Then I'm considering graduate school, and after that it's medical school...All I can do is pray that everything works out for the best. For an average, it really depends on where you attend school, and what you plan to do after you graduate.

The college that we want to go to at least. Most people could easily go to an instate pwi (in my case, chicago state which is majority black), but we would rather make the sacrifice for a more desireable and hopefully more fulfilling experience and education. As for the loan, it's basically like kool said. You have a few payment methods to choose from, and it may eventually be easier to get the method that gives you the most amount of time to pay it off. In my case I'll have, at the most, 30 years with the amount increasing every year.

Exactly. I could have easily went to college here and been on scholarship but I rather deal with paying back loans, than not being happy with were I went to school and my college experience. It's easy to say, "loans are bad" or "people shouldn't get them", if you don't need them.
