Welcome to Degrees and Debt! A financial and life journey (too corny?). Well, I am a 24 year old male from Boston, MA. I got a B.A. in Political Science a few years ago and am now wrapping up my M.S. Project Management. Throughout my undergrad I racked up almost a hundred thousand dollars in student loan debt and when the masters program is done that will add another twenty two thousand. Like many others I have other debt as well; a mortgage, credit cards, bills, groceries, life, etc.
As you can see I have dug a pretty deep hole for myself pretty early in life, but like so many other young graduates, I am in the same situation as many others. I finally realized I had to do something serious about this debt or I would take it to the grave with me (not to mention it would just keep growing). I decided the best way to tackle it was creativity and more important, tracking, thats how Degrees and Debt was born.
