Sucks because I've been talking to a contact for a job with a large non-profit that works with inner city kids and tries to put them on track to a better life. It sounds awesome. It would give me time to coach AAU etc. I would also have my loans forgiven in ten years. Downside, I would have to move up in the corporation and wouldnt gain marketable skills. I hate that money is starting to rule my life choices. Debt sucks.
75k isn't that bad at all. I have a newly minted lawyer friend who's in for over 150k and he had a scholarship! the thing i like about school is that it really preps u for frugality.
that job sounds really sweet. sounds like it would be something that gives back to the community quite a bit so a lot of pecuniary value there
