The United States government wants to tell you about these secrets but they can't... they lack the budget to advertise these programs. According to the White House Office of the Press Secretary, more than 36 million Americans have federal student loan debt, but fewer than 450,000 participate in the secret programs described in Elliott H. Stone's book. Millions more may be eligible to reduce their monthly payments to an affordable amount based on income, family size and the type of job they hold. Veteran litigator, Elliott H.

According to the United States Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, outstanding student loan debt has reached $1 trillion, a sum that is likely to increase with increasing tuition rates. Despite the growing problem of debt, many borrowers are simply unaware of their options and continue to struggle with, or ignore, their loans.

Whether you are overwhelmed by high monthly payments or your loan is in default, this book has secrets that may be able to help. You don't need to feel trapped under your student loans anymore. So, if you are struggling with student loan debt and are looking for a few answers, get ready for some student loan secrets "they" don't want you to know about.

"Easy to read and hard to put down! Interesting and informative!" Get someone else to pay for your education. Landlord Away Your Student Loan Debt chronicles the path I took which made every student loan payment for me and put a few bucks in my pocket to boot. My strategy was simple: Pay off student loan debt with real estate. I have never made a student loan payment with my own money. I'm sorry to say I don't have any gimmicky system to sell you. If you read this book, you will be equipped to start your journey toward financial freedom. You will be given advice, Internet search criteria, and suggested readings throughout this text. You will also be able to experience several pitfalls that plagued me while I established myself in the landlord business. I neutralized over $200,000.00 of student loan debt without using any of my own money! I turned paying my student loans into a game and I smile every month when the money is drafted out of an account that I didn't fund (my tenants funded it for me). This book features lots of advice from a seasoned landlord, web searches for useful information, a primer on student loan repayment, and a great story. A lot of effort has gone into making this book an "easy read." I purposefully left out as much business, landlording, and real estate jargon as possible. The approach taken assumes that the reader is not a seasoned landlord, or an expert regarding student loans.

The Student Loan Scam is an exposé of the predatory nature of the $85-billion student loan industry. In this in-depth exploration, Collinge argues that student loans have become the most profitable, uncompetitive, and oppressive type of debt in American history. This has occurred in large part due to federal legislation passed since the mid-1990s that removed standard consumer protections from student loans-and allowed for massive penalties and draconian wealth-extraction mechanisms to collect this inflated debt. High school graduates can no longer put themselves through college for a few thousand dollars in loan debt. Today, the average undergraduate borrower leaves school with more than $20,000 in student loans, and for graduate students the average is a whopping $42,000. For the past twenty years, college tuition has increased at more than double the rate of inflation, with the cost largely shifting to student debt. Collinge covers the history of student loans, the rise of Sallie Mae, and how universities have profited at the expense of students. The book includes candid and compelling stories from people across the country about how both nonprofit and for-profit student loan companies, aided by poor legislation, have shattered their lives-and livelihoods. With nearly 5 million defaulted loans, this crisis is growing to epic proportions. The Student Loan Scam takes an unflinching look at this unprecedented and pressing problem, while exposing the powerful organizations and individuals who caused it to happen. Ultimately, Collinge argues for the return of standard consumer protections for student loans, among other pragmatic solutions, in this clarion call for social action.

We have all read headlines featuring a fortunate college-bound student who has received $100,000 or more in scholarship awards. Assuming that the scholarships were renewable annually, this amount could easily pay for four years of college at any American college or university. However, these success stories are the exception, not the rule. They are aberrations among the pool of millions of aspiring college students who submit scholarship applications to the hundreds of companies, foundations and non-profit groups that offer them. The reality is a much different, and sobering, picture. According to the 2014 edition of Peterson's Scholarships, Grants and Prizes, nearly every student who earns a four-year degree graduates with student loan debt, which currently averages about $23,300. 101 Scholarship Applications: What It Takes to Obtain a Debt-Free College Education was written specifically to address the issue of college loan debt, and help students and their parents identify scholarship opportunities, as well as develop strategies for submitting applications and winning awards. This book's author, Gwen Richardson, is a parent who spent nearly two years carefully researching scholarship sources for her teenage daughter, who entered college debt-free as a freshman. The highlight of this book is a comprehensive listing of more than 101 scholarship sources, including award amounts, eligibility requirements and direct website links. All sources have been vetted and researched for accuracy.
