Free at last

Orac just made the final payment on his student loans from medical school. He has asked for others to share their stories of loan repayment. The numbers mentioned by some of the medical students are truly amazing. But medical students aren't the only ones to finish school in debt servitude. My degrees were in History. Although my debt was much smaller than those of a medical student, my earning potential was also an order of magnitude smaller. I finished paying off my loans a few days before my 49th birthday.

Whether or not you have a story to share, you should go congratulate Orac.
