I found my friend reading an article (http://management.fortune.cnn.com/2012/05/16/student-debt-business-school/) featuring this blog: http://nomoreharvarddebt.com/
Found it interesting and perhaps I could pick up an idea or 2 for myself on improving my own financial management - not that I need drastic adjustments but a few tips on personal finance don't hurt.
It bugs me though, having to pay off loans that gargantuan. I heard from my friends from the US: medical students, college loans, MBAs etc.... It's a very typical phenomenon... In comparison, I feel extremely fortunate.
