My name is Molly Day and I am a student loan borrower. I created this blog to document my fight against my student loans and to help others beat their own student loan debt. As student loan refinancing and consolidation becomes more popular, more and more lenders are entering the game. There are tons of sites out there that review these lenders, but often the owners of these sites receive compensation and, therefore, have biased reviews. My goal is to create an unbiased site that helps borrowers save money by seeing the current rates from these lenders
My student loan dilemma started when I was a student at the University of Southern California. My parents always told me to choose a college that I loved, without worrying about the cost. And I did just that. I decided to go to one of the most expensive private schools out there. I had an incredible time at USC, and I appreciate everything I learned and the people I met. That being said, USC left me with more than just a degree. Each and every semester I signed my promissory note with little consideration. And when it was all said and done, USC left me with $50,000 in federal and private student loan debt!
Since graduating in 2012, I’ve been able to make a significant dent on my balance. Luckily, I have a good job and enough extra income each month to pay more than the minimum. As of August, 2015, I have just over $30,000 in student loan debt. My goal is to payoff all of this debt within the next two years with the help of this blog and the support of my friends and family. I’ve just refinanced and I am ready to put an end to my student loans.
Thank you for stopping by! I hope to see you come again soon. I plan to update this blog at least once a week for the foreseeable future. In addition, I plan to release my progress openly and honestly once a month.
Cheers to beating student loan debt!
