College Debt

Does this sound like you?

From USAToday:

"After years of rising college costs and shrinking financial aid, it's come to this: Some graduates are now leaving college with student-loan debt in the six figures.

Graduates with more than $100,000 in debt still account for a small subset of borrowers. But their numbers are rising. And the proportion who are leaving college with some level of unmanageable debt — debt they can't repay without significant hardship — is swelling."

but on the good side if it does:
"Still, students remain willing to load up on loans in large part because studies have long shown that an investment in college pays off. The Census Bureau has estimated that college graduates will earn about $1 million more over their lifetimes than individuals with only a high school diploma."
