I am a senior in the criminology program and an aspiring law school candidate. My education would not have been possible without taking on a substantial amount of student loan debt. I am frightened when it comes to paying back my loans.
My loans cover tuition costs, and that’s it. I have to pay for cost-of-living expense such as rent, food, and transportation out of pocket. I participate in the work-study program and am enrolled in the Equal Opportunity Program (EOP). Investing in higher education will allow students like me the opportunity to grow as individuals, and ultimately positively affect the great state of New York.
