With Bernie out of the race, it looks like we won't be getting free college tuition anytime soon. And that's ok. College is still a good investment. But the debt that many students take out is crippling. The last thing you want to do is graduate college with 6 figure debt weighing you down.

Thats over $10 million/hour, 240 million/day, 1.6 billion/week.
Our student loan debt clock sits at over $1.3 Trillion
That's more than national credit card debt and is second only to mortgage debt.

And that's just the average. There are many students with 6 figure loan debt.
7 out of 10 students leave college with some kind of loan debt
