This is amazing, and has inspired me to go after my school loan debt (which I have been carrying for THIRTEEN YEARS) as aggressively as I have started attacking my credit card debt. I spent most of the first decade after college (not even graduate school, just normal undergrad) having to pay only the minimum, defer due to unemployment, or lower my payments due to being underemployed and underpaid. But that’s not my life now. And I am really tired of paying for an education that has barely served me and came from an institution I despise. Thanks for the links — I’m going to see what I can do about bringing that balance down. As soon as I can.
