Dietrich Linde & Carlie Linde both graduated from Virginia Tech in 2011, Dietrich with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, and Carlie with a degree in Psychology and Interdisciplinary Studies. Throughout college, Dietrich and Carlie amassed $155,000+ in student loans. That’s the bad news. The good news is that in 5 years they repaid 100% of their debt.
In this episode, Dietrich, Carlie, and I discuss:
- How they managed to accrue over $155,000 in student loans
- What students can do to prevent falling prey to massive student loans, and
- If students already have student loans, how they can repay them in rapid fashion
Dietrich’s “tweetable” advice: “The remarkable thing about our story is that it is unremarkable.”
Carlie’s “tweetable” advice: “Dollars are made out of nickels and dimes.”
