Robinson launched her career at Merrill Lynch after getting a degree in business administration. She believes the degree has helped her land jobs easily. So, even though she owes $900 a month in loan payments, Robinson doesn't regret going to school. She currently works as an executive assistant at a big pharmaceutical company in New Jersey.
As a college student, Robinson said she had no idea about the consequences of borrowing so much.
"I feel like I probably won't pay these student loans off in my lifetime, but I've got a degree from Seton Hall and it looks pretty good on my resume," she said.
Some four-year degrees offer a much a better return on investment than graduate degrees do.
