  1. At least the education is an asset that won’t depreciate or be reposessed. When applying for any job, it is much more valuable to be able to list completion of any degree, vs. just attending college.

    Still, $80,000. That’s gotta hurt.

    Oh man. We spent the same but it was in a field my wife loves and is enjoying the fruits of her labors. But her best friend spent four years at Santa Cruz and two years and USC Law. Roughly $200k in loans and she is now looking to change her field. She hates law. We saw it coming when she started it. Sooo stupid.
