Going in debt at a young age..
my 20yo nephew. Honor role student in high school.
he is a 2nd year pharmacy student who married another 20yo with a 2 yo child. His new wife makes about $25,000 a year. My sister in law is vivid so my nephew has cut all ties with the family.
His grades dropped after he got married and he was dropped from the program.
He was accepted into another program out of state, so they are going to move there so he can finish his final 4 years (pharmacy is a 6 year program)
To not pay out of state tuition, they are buying a house. He is also paying for his remaining 4 years of college.
All paid for with student loans!
Oh, and she's pregnant again...
My husband is a pharmasist, and although he was also on the honor role in high school, he said pharmacy school was tough enough without a wife and 2 kids to worry about.
Someone tell me something that will make me feel better about all this.
Thanks for letting me vent.
