I'm 22 years old and finishing college next year but I am thinking about taking a year off to help start paying these loans before I get buried! I've talked over my options with a couple of my old bosses, both used to drive. They said that I could do a training program with a large carrier like Swift, get my CDL, ride out my contract, and then use what I earn to pay tuition and loans. I don’t think it sounds like a bad idea and I def want to go back to finish school. I have come too far to drop out now. I can see the country and trucking would beat flipping burgers, wouldn't it? What do you all think I should do?
