—President Obama in North Carolina today on why Congress has to act to prevent interest rates on student loans from doubling (via barackobama)
I graduated from medical school in 2002. As of today, I am $202, 012.79 in debt. I pay about $840 a month. I will pay this for the next 29 and a half years and will therefore be 65 when I pay off my medical school loans. I am fortunate that my parents paid for my undergraduate education at Washington University in St. Louis.
