24 year old recent grad here with a degree from an overpriced fancy shmancy school. Still have some of those loans left, but I also have $6.7k in my 401k (only been eligible for 1 year at my company) and just under $4k in the bank. I'd be willing to bet that by my 26th birthday, I'll have 9k in the bank, or, more likely, in a Roth IRA or some other investment. My SL will be paid off, and my 401k will be worth even more. Suck it, whiny Facebook people!
Haha, I'm sure you will! 25.5 year old here who started out with $40,000 in student loans making $38,000 a year at age 22 with $13,000 in the bank, now rid of student loans with $56,000 in investment accounts.
Keep spreading the word....candles in the darkness!
