The first article is kind of scary. As many of you know, loans make college possible for a good majority of college students. Unfortunately for us, the government limits the amount of loans that are backed by the government. Typically they offer better rates, so I think we all want to get those loans. However, because of that limit, we’re often forced to either get a job (or two) or we seek out loans from a private source. The article discusses the private lender situation, and it’s not a good one. Things seem to be alright for the next year, but beyond that, who knows? I suggest you read the article!
