$160,000+ In Debt

Produced by HuffPost's Eyes & Ears Citizen Journalism Unit as part of the HuffPost College Student Debt series.

I made the wrong choice in going to a school that charged master's level fees for associate and bachelor's level classes. I am also unable to consolidate the private loans being handled by Sallie Mae due to the current state of the credit markets. I'll probably have my house paid off before my school loans.
