While this article apparently comes from a financial lender, it's actually a decent article ... except where it suggests that college students should "take out their own loans & pay them back in a timely manner." That smacks of the same kind of exploitation the credit card companies practice when they offer $3,500 limit credit cards to students whose only income is a twice- or thrice-yearly financial aid check.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've a 21 year old in college but he lives at home so I've got it a tad easier. Cookies are always good.
