Please think ahead to ten to fifteen years down the road .
BTW, I know quite a few people who did not finish paying off their student loans until their mid thirties. Not everyone gets a great job right out of college (or can live with their parents for free while they are paying down their loans).

I do agree that it is best to keep student loans as low as possible.

Iíd like to live in Chicago or Vegas. Maybe when she finishes 8th grade we may move. Both of those public school systems suck. My daughter is very smart and is in the International Baccalaureate program. Maybe she could qualify for a magnet school. Itís already hard being a single parent but my aunt helps. I donít know how Iím supposed to do it totally by myself.

I don't know about Vegas, but in Chicago, there are some very good magnet programs and also some IB high schools. Also, many of the suburbs have wonderful schools.
