I made $28k out of college. Owned a new car, rented a modest apartment, had a baby, and still had money in my pocket at the end of the week.....


COMBINED......so just for shits and giggles your minimum is $450 a month, not the $1,000 I suggested be paid.
I agree!
I know I'm old but I made 12.5k in my first job out of college. I had to still work a part time job, drive a beater, and live with a roommate for 4 years. Whatever happened to living with in your means and working your ass off? I never had student loans though because Wayne state gave me an academic scholarship and somehow at 17 I was smart enough to know no or less debt was better than going to a fun school. During college, I didn't really eat, lived in cockroach infested Detroit apartments, lived with roommates, and always had at least one job during college.

I think there are tens of thousands of engineers in the area making more than 60k. Most aren't dressing very fancy, at least everywhere I've worked.
You can get khakis at Walmart for 16 dollars, and dress shirts for 12. I think I got my first career clothes at salvation army. I thank God sometimes I grew up so poor. I know how to make do unlike the entitlement generation.

Yea, but Walmart and goodwill are "uncool", and for poor people without debt. Using products from either place will lead to being financially effective, and "Debt is Wealth", or so I was once told.

I'm not sure how all that works, so I just shop at cheap stores and live within my means.

"Doctorate in Clinical psychology, Median $66K/yr." Return on investment isn't very good there

"2. Master Plumber (90th Percentile Pay: $102,000; Median Pay: $60,000)

As long as we want running water in our homes and business, plumbers will be in demand -- job-outlook forecasts for plumbers are usually very favorable. Whether they work as sole entrepreneurs or for larger companies, plumbers typically spend their time installing and repairing water, waste-disposal, drainage and gas systems and related appliances.

There are many paths to becoming a master plumber, but a common one is through a term of apprenticeship to another master plumber. According to the BLS, most plumbers, pipefitters and steamfitters get their training in jointly administered apprenticeships or in technical schools and community colleges. Most states require that plumbers be licensed; licensing requirements vary, but most localities require workers to have a minimum of two years of experience and pass an examination on the trade and local plumbing codes."

my fiance buys all of her work clothes at salvation army. Almost everything she has purchased is top quality name brand shit. We're talking business suits, dress pants, dress skirts, dress shirts, things that would normally be $30-$100 per item.

She has been paying $2-10/item.

She is the best dressed girl in the office and has been paying less than walmart prices

I buy all my work clothes at TJ Maxx, or at least all of my dress shirts. I think the last IZOD polo I bought there was $8 with a retail price of $40

That's where most of my work shirts have came from as well. All like $50 shirts for like 12 bucks...

I buy my pants at Walmart though. I'm pretty good at doing something dumb to ruin pants so I figure the least investment the best.

Loans

I joined the army. My student loan was paid for by the government when I met the promises I gave before saluting the flag. Due to slow paperwork, the government paid it back a little late. 4 quarters at Ferris State cost me $18.00.

For two years I put in my time fixing army generators and shining my shoes. Of which I put 100 dollars out of about 500 I got paid each month away for school. When I got out those 100 dollar payments turned into 600.00 checks which I used to support my family while I worked full time and attended ITT for 4 hours everynight. I still had to take out loans which I eventually paid back, along with my wife's student loans.

I spent years building up my credit, trying to do what was right and be a good citizen and person.

Now my son is going to school and I am sure it was the same with your friend taking out a loan. The only way they would do the loan is if I was the co-signer. Basically I am responsible for the loan and if the payments are late or not made my credit is screwed.

If I read a post from my son or about my son not paying back his loan. I can guarantee you one thing I would be furious. Its not easy doing the right thing, but I guarantee you I would be severly hurt and disapointed if I even suspected that he wasnt trying to pay back the loan.

Sounds like your friend didnt learn much in school. What a dumbass.

How in the hell does one accumulate that much school debt without putting any thought into how they will pay for it once done.

Its dumb asses like this that motivate me to go to my 50-60hr a week job working my ass off to make the money to pay my tution, books and living expenses.
So far I've managed to go 4 semsters in a row enrolled in 16 credits and I don't have a dime in loan debt. It is possible you just need the finacial discipline and the motivation.
You plan ahead! Not rack up the debt and then figure out what you're going to do. I stopped counting the amount of times I rolled my eyes reading this thread, ffs
