    Great article! Thanks for sharing...I am beginning to wish I had never applied so that I wouldn't have to possibly make the decision of not going. Been dying here! The debt load is going to be INSANE. Lots of soul searching...

    Hey, you're doing the right thing. Don't jump in blind.

    I don't mean to post stuff like this to scare people away from GS. But, everyone deserves the opportunity to make a fully informed decision about their education and its costs. I know GS people who pay close to $1000/month to Sallie Mae and others.

    Think back ten years. Think about how much you've grown and evolved in that decade. Think of all the milestones. Now think about the fact that you'll likely be paying your students loans off for AT LEAST as long as that ten years. How would $1000/month for the next ten years affect your life?

    Thanks for posting this, Jan! I've been stuck in finals mode so I didn't get a chance.

    The financial issue really can't be understated, but has been discussed again and again. It's a fantastic one of a kind opportunity, with a price to match.
