Also, here’s the link to the debt-to-income calculator I promised (:
You’ll be fine! The debt is really scary to think about, but it’s SO worth it in the end. The average debt without scholarships (like I say in my video that’s taking forever to upload) is around 80-100k for a masters once interest is added over the years it takes you to pay off your debt. But, with scholarships and grants it’s only about 30k which makes this era for college so much more accessible then previous generations (: So don’t freak out too bad. It’s a great experience and totally worth it in the end.
Here’s a debt to income ratio calculator that might help make you feel better. You punch in the amount your going to take out in loans and the amount you’re projected to make in your chosen profession after graduation, interest rate, and minimum payment and it should tell you how long it will take to pay it off and such: http://calculators.collegetoolkit.com/College-Calculators/DebtToIncome.aspx
Awe that’s actually a great idea! As a graduating senior I feel like that’s a perfect way to wrap up my college career. Do you have any questions in particular? And did you decide on Mercyhurst? (:
