Thanks John for the donation. I am so sure we will all get out of student loan debt. We must educate the ones considering college to not take on student loan debt if at all possible just do not take on debt.

Read this article if you have time ! It is a good summary of how college is the new tax on us all to bail out the USA so do you still think college is best for you?

Hello! My name is Christopher Durham. I have a goal to pay off all my student loans by 2015. According to Sallie Mae the balance due is $36,184 in principal plus interest. The payoff will take until February of 2024 by paying off the loans over time. I graduated from college in 2001 but I have not been able to pay off the loans faster. I have had life changes along the way but have never defaulted on the loans. I have never regretted getting my degree. The loans are a burden on my finances. I am asking for the world to help me to achieve my goal to pay them off. I graduated with a Bachelor of Information Technology. I feel great knowing I was able to put myself through college since I did not have parents who could help me. I plan to donate to others once I have the loans paid off in full. Paying off the student loans will free up over $300 a month for me. I know I could do a lot of good with this loan being paid off. Thanks for taking time to read this and I am very grateful for your support in any amount.

 

All the Best,

Chris
