student loans FINALLY important?!

wahoooooo!! according to this::

student loan interest rates go down

i may be paying a *teensy* bit less in interest when i graduate. yippeeee!

also, students can borrow an additional $2000 in federal unsubsidized loans. that’s fantastic news. for students, like myself, who struggle to get outside loans (in my first two years i did) because of no credit/bad credit/not coming from a family who can afford to start paying them right away – getting even LOANS to stay in school is SO challenging. at UNL (and i believe most schools) you have to be an upperclassman to get above a mere $2 or $3000 in federal loans. so this whole thing is HUGE in allowing students that wouldn’t be able to afford school and get the loans to continue TO continue. for me – i had to work 35 hours a week and do a full course load in order to stay at UNL. it’s such an amazing thought to think that for the next students like myself… they may be able to get the money they need through the federal government.

Congress. Doing something right. Getting something done. I love it!
