    How does one even begin to pay that off!! My sister has 150,000 and I think that will be a forever debt.

    But congratulations on all 3. When my kids went to grad school they got full rides. Hope yours do if they go. It's not that hard to get.

    Congrats on all three getting through!! What an investment!

    My second will graduate in May, the first graduated last May. They each have $18,000 in loans to pay, so not too bad. We will help when we can.

    My DD school was the expensive one! She got 10 thousand off a year. it was 45,000 a year. All girl private. The other DD went to F.I.T. in NYC. They didn't give scholerships. It cost 2,000 a month just for her room and board.
    Just so expensive. My DS was the cheapest.
    They will be going on to higher education.
