Live in D.C.? Is your student loan debt so high it feels like the world is resting on your shoulders?
Well, you're not alone.
According to a report by credit monitoring company Credit Karma Inc., D.C. residents have the highest student loan debt in the country by far.
The average balance for a D.C. resident is a staggering $47,390. That figure places well above the $29,339 national average.
If you're living just a hop and skip over the border in Maryland, you too may be feeling the pain -- just not as much. Maryland residents boast the second highest average student loan debt at $33,727.
These figures may not come as a big surprise to everyone in the District. A recent study by Central Connecticut State University named D.C. as the most literate city in the nation. More than 28 percent of D.C. residents 25 or older hold a postgraduate or professional degree and over 50 percent have at least a bachelor's degree.
