Maybe someone out there can help me, because I feel like I have exhausted every resource I know so far.. I owe $165,000 in student loans. Thankfully, I have a decent job, as I went to school for Electrical Engineering, however the monthly payment of $1250(and its going up!) is a real burden. Its also depressing to have spent all my time and hard work in school and then coming out with massive debt, making less money overall than if I didn't go to school at all... This is the reason why I am trying to do any kind of side job(MLM, etc.) to pay this off, or at least make enough on the side to pay for the monthly payment. I'm looking for any advice anyone can give me. Maybe even a mentor in another MLM program who can help me on my path to paying this off. They are mainly private loans, so this means I cannot take advantage of the income based repayment option available on government loans. Thanks all. Just wanted to get this out there. You never know, maybe someone has been in my situation before.
