I recently found out that Alan Collinge will be closing down the Student Loan Justice Facebook group. The idea behind it would have been amazing, but sadly, Facebook is not the place to organize such a cause.
He will continue the Student Loan Justice website.
Collinge did post this link through the Facebook page, therefore, I too will pass this on. It's worth a shot.
There is also a worthwhile discussion here.
I would like to issue an apology to Cryn Johannsen for a previous post, it is a misunderstanding in the heat of a moment and I did not intend to direct anything towards her. I thank her for her work and continue to thank her for her future work.
And finally, while at a local bookstore, I was able to glance at Debt-Free U: How I Paid for an Outstanding College Education Without Loans, Scholarships, or Mooching off My Parents. It seems like a very vital book for any new college hopeful and a guide to avoid the student loan nightmare. I just wish this book had come out years ago. To paraphrase a quote, it went something along the lines of, "Those who understand compound debt will profit from it, while those who do not will be destined to pay it." How true. Sad. But true.
