I would like to know if anyone has come up with unique ways to pay off student loans. I truly wanted my BS degree and I worked diligently for it and now I have all of these outstanding student loans. I am now about to begin my Masters program and I know I wil have many more student loans to pay. There should be more ways to help students repay their loans. I am trying to get scholarships for my Masters program but not having a lot of luck. Comments?
Yes it is difficult to find the right fit for a Masters Program. My daughter went to an HBCU for her graduate work and she never did get her Masters. She experienced the disorganization also and one professor that was interested in her success was deported back to Africa. It is really disheartening for her because she has the huge ($100,000) of student loans and no Masters degree yet. She is going back to her original university now to get her Masters. It is frstrating that our HBCU schools are not able to provide the quality education that we deserve, but I know that some of the problems are financial. Hang in there -it will all be worth it in the end.

I attended an HBCU during my undergraduate studies at Delaware State University. At the time I experienced disorganization, poor disposition and ineffective communication on their part as well. Had it not been for my mom working for the state legislature and using the authority that was available at the time, they would have caused disorder throughout my education there. Overall, it was a great experience and enjoyed every aspect of it. I survived and graduated. A few years after graduation I enrolled at the University of Michigan while teaching in Detroit and received my masters degree. The entire process went tremendously smooth in comparison to DSU. At the time I needed to implement more strategies and techniques into my classroom in addition to giving myself a challenge to work towards. Five years later after relocating back home to California I decided to enroll in a doctoral program at the University of the Pacific in which I currently attend. This entire program has been a blessing. It has been an enjoyable learning experience as well as an awesome dissertation journey so far. The support I have from my colleagues (current and alumni), faculty including my advisor/dissertation chair has been immeasurable. Timing is everything!! I wish you the best on your journey for a school that suites you.
