I have a full scholarship, and I am still uncomfortable with this amount of debt. A few years after I graduated from college, I racked up a few grand in credit card debt. That debt caused me serious stress for a number of years, and it was nowhere near the amounts people are contemplating in this thread. Plus, that debt was completely dischargeable. I wonder if young people really know what it will be like to pay off $200K.
Some of this is why I choose NU. I got no $$ from one tier-1 school and a full-ride to a tier 4. So I was looking at t-14 & 250k debt, t-1 and 150k debt, or t-4 and 80k debt, but only NU had solid LRAP, made my decision pretty simple.
