Today, college doors seem to be more and more difficult to get through.  Further, once students get in graduation seems to be further and further away.  Five years is now the norm!  Add to this the fact that once you graduate you probably are going to have to pay off loans of tens of thousands of dollars!  Failure to pay back student loans is now the number one reason for loan default.  Is it even worth going to college anymore?  Today we will take a good look at these questions.

Why are college students defaulting on loans at record rates? Is it still worth getting higher education degrees?

What is a Free Application for Federal Student Aid, and how do you get one?
