I just maintain that anyone smart should attend a state school. I wouldn't have minded paying my in-state school loan fees, as hard as it's been to get a job in my field. But that is DOUBLED because I attended an out-of-state school.
Now, a lot of great things happened as a result, but boy, am I paying for it. And I wonder what the percentage of students attending schools in different states is, because my if I slashed my debt in half, I would finish paying that within two or three years, easy, rather than over 10 or so.
