Flash forward to your first job after college – and way too much of your salary is going to your student loans.

If you borrow more across all your years in college than you can expect to make in your first year at your first job, you could be in a great deal of debt for a very long period of time.

So, make sure the cost of the school you choose (including room, board and other likely expenses) is in line with the profession you expect to work in.
