Loan Strategy

Seven out of ten graduates have student loan debt and the average amount of debt is $37,000.  That equates to a payment plan of $400/month for 10 years. Will your son/daughter be able to afford their loan payments when they graduate? We will determine a “Max Student Loan Amount” based on college major and career goals.
