Here at Boston.com, we think student debt is an issue worth covering.
But while we can rattle the figures off easily—more than a trillion dollars in total student debt, the average student with debt comes out of college nearly $30,000 in the hole—we also want to get to know the people affected.
And specifically, we want to know how you manage.
It costs a pretty penny to live in Boston, we already know, but plenty of recent grads do. If you can get steady work out of school, entry-level wages generally aren’t terrific. And the student debt obligation can’t make it any easier.
So what’s the calculus? How do you keep everything in budget? Do you even have a budget? How does the debt obligation hold you back—if at all? How do you make it work?
