    I'd feel pretty bad if I had to give away part of my income for the rest of my life to pay for my education. I'm very glad I worked my way through university and now all my income is mine.

    I didn't go into debt to pay for my education, but even that seems preferable to selling a portion of your income for the rest of your life because you can pay debt off then you are done with it.

    CJB, About 30% of college students do not borrow. If you can pull it off
    without loans that is a great choice. As for the question of
    debt vs equity to finance, there are good reasons for either path.
    The equity deal discussed in the article is a 10 year commitment just like
    the standard student loan.
