A lifetime shackle of debt isn't worth this. Always look over your options before you ever sign that Promissory Note. Don't believe the hype that without that loan, you won't make your dream a reality. Just like when the tobacco company said smoking makes you look cool and popular but neglected to tell you about the cancer. Don't believe the lies. There are always other options. You just have to find them.
Just don't find out the horror of student loans like these people in this CNN article.
