Am I some kind of weirdo here for not having debt? Middle-class, entry-level retail job, lives with parents who chip in some of the money, and commutes to state uni 6 miles away. Unless I decide to go to graduate school somewhere else I don't expect to take on any sort of debt.
i think i had about 5k debt when i graduated? then again i had a part time job for most of my college years... probably hurt my grades cause i didn't really have a lot of time to study, but nobody cares about your grades anymore as long as you get the piece of paper at the end.
i think your own mentality also comes into play here, if being in debt really bother you (like me) i would try to figure out how long it would take you to pay off the debt and just keep that in mind so you might feel better about it.
