Thank you for standing up to student loan crap the US normalizes!
Ive never missed a loan payment (been almost 2 decades now), had a few jobs in grad school, & Im STILL years away from paying off grad school debt!!! Compared to my lawyer friends in UK. (They dont let banks profit on the backs of students. Both our law schools are 3 years, but theirs is 1 year of studies, the other 2 years at a law firm or other placement that pays for your law school & introduces you to all their departments (ie contracts, real estate, employments) so you are getting practical experience & getting paid. ) they never knew what debt was.
Why is the US ok to treat its students this way?
