45k is a lot of money. even if it feels like a drop in the bucket. after interest something like an additional $800/month over life of your loan.
The funny thing about this is if you do actually end up in this spot, you probably won't know it. So in the end you will essentially regret taking the 45K anyway you look at it.
There's so much naivete and fail in both these posts it's hard to know where to begin.
There is no way you would know if you fell into that part of the class doyel. Honestly, if you say otherwise you're either being 1.disingenuous or 2. just trying to be condescending for no reason. That's really just as bad as when people say things like "if I were top 30 percent at Cornell that means I would have been below median at Columbia" There is simply no way of knowing something like that.
