Student Loans and the Rising Cost of Higher Education

The average student loan debt for 2012 college graduates is $25,000. President Barack Obama pays a visit to UNLV this week to discuss student loans as he asks Congress to stop student loan rates from doubling in July. We talk with a financial aid expert about how to choose the right school and major for your pocketbook, and how to deal with all that debt once you receive your degree.  If you found a way to pay your student loans fast or you're struggling to find a job and pay the loans back, share your story with us.
