I got my stimulus check direct deposited this morning! And, I put almost all of it toward debt. Some to the church. No new big screen tv for us to help him prop up the failing economy (our big screen is working fine, thank you!). I know someone will now tell me that the only people suffering are average americans and even worse poor Americans and I get that.
What are you going to do with yours? Yes, you too can put it toward my school debt if you want. I learned yesterday that the new after the JD wave #2 data shows that 7 years after law school,
most grads practicing law have $47,000 in school debt remaining and African-Americans have significantly more ($57,000 if memory serves). Sorry, that was incorrect — the average debt is $57,000 and African-American’s average is $70,000.
I have been out coming up on 10 years (well, 10 years since I finished the PhD — my law degree was actually 1996, come to think of it) and am not practicing law (therefore paying it back very slowly, but not making so little that I qaulify for forgiveness) and let’s just say I am average on this one.
By the way, I did save enough to purchase some metal bull testicles for Jeff’s birthday.
