Annotation:"The number of college graduates with high levels of student debt has skyrocketed since the early 1990s, even after accounting for inflation. In 1993, 1.3% of graduating seniors with student loans owed at least $40,000 (in 2004 dollars). In 2004, 7.7% owed $40,000 or more. That represents a 10-fold jump from approximately 7,000 to 77,550 new graduates with high debt. At double the national average, $40,000 is more than most people can manage to repay in 10 years."
