I’ve seen this graphic before, and it is rather telling. Sadly, with the price of school, it is near impossible to make it through without amassing at least five digits worth of student loan debt.
Also, it’s somewhat clear that this person is unclear on how the need-based financial aid process works. Saving and working mean you qualify for less financial aid. So either way, you’re fucked.
Being even more cynical for a moment, this, like most of these sorts of things, encourages people to “fight” with the oh-so-effective method of writing your congressman. I’ve already thrown away enough generic response letters to fill a god damned book. Another one is just going to be a waste of my time.
