         Loan Wisdom
• Borrow Federal first because they’re cheaper,
  more available, and have better repayment
  terms than private student loans.
• Live like a student while you’re in college so
  you don’t have to live like one after college.
• Do not borrow more for your entire education
  than your expected starting salary after you
  graduate.
• If you are borrowing more than $10,000/year
  for college, consider a less expensive school.
