Debt in College
Students on average have from 12,000 to 16,000 dollars in debt when they graduate from college. An article on Nextstudent.com gives a way to avoid college debt through preparation. The idea is to set one's self situation up in a way that you will not have to deal with any debt by taking the necessary precautions such as taking advanced placement classes, applying for scholarships, concentrating on getting good grades and staying involved. Even though one can do all of these things, it doesn't ensure that one will not have debt. I think that debt and college just go and hand these days, unless you have enough money to afford to pay full tuition. I say everyone should go to college and not let debt stand in the way of the experience and opportunity that going to college will provide.
