    How can I pay off $175,000 in student loans and still have a life?

    I am 27 and just graduated from law school with about $175,000 in student loans. I have a good job, but am torn between working to pay off these loans quickly, or focusing on more equity-building financial decisions, like saving for a down payment on a house. Where should I allocate my discretionary income? -- Lindsey Sadler

    Anybody who goes that deep into debt to go to law school doesn't touch my pity buttons at all. Get a part time job as a greeter at Wal-Mart. You’re smart enough to get through law school but not smart enough to know what you’re doing to yourself financially? Spare me!

    Do what we all have to do - work and pay off your debt.

    These young ones want to graduate - have a $250 - $300 thousand dollar home - two new cars and start planning their first major cruise/vacation within a year after graduation !
    Take some economic's and life planning courses -

    Good luck - it takes most people 20-30 years before they see the true fruits of their labors !
