  • How many years did it take you to pay your student loan(s)?

    I'm just wondering about this from a Canadian perspective.

      I was lucky enough to not have any student loans. I lived at home and went to a local state university for undergrad, and in state tuition was cheap enough that a good factory job over the summer and working as a security guard at night could pay for it all. Grad school for my MS, doctorate, and post doctoral training were free, as I taught college courses to fulfill the tuition requirements.

        Still not paid it back. well, I only finished uni 2 years ago. Here it's automatically been deducted from your wages depending on what you earn. So I don't actively do anything

            0 years. Got through undergrad on scholarship and my parents' commitment to higher education. Paid my own way through my MA program b/c I stayed with my full-time job.

                  I racked up about 10 grand in loans in grad school. Took less than three years to pay it off. I was making the regular payments for a couple years, but then, after we got married, my wife and I made that our first priority before we started saving for a house.

                      ~5 or 6 years, I think.

                        USA guy here. It took about 3 years (starting 17 years ago) to pay off around 30 grand.

                          No loans for undergrad. No loans for grad school. 10 years to pay off one aborted year of law school. I just should've finished the thing... (All of this was late '80s early '90s).

                            Yes, we'll be paying off my wife's law school debt for another 20 years or so, but it's a small monthly payment with a crazy good interest rate, so if we see any significant inflation in the next decade we might even come out ahead...

                              Didn't have any loans. Between scholarships, my awesome parents and living at home and going to a state school it was all taken care of.

                              One interesting note, my first semester was fall 02' and it cost about $900 for a full load (4 class or 12 credits. By the time I graduated in 07' (shut up I was in no hurry ) the tuition had at least doubled if not more. Parking fees had gone from $40 to over $120.

                              So glad I got out when I did.
