Today the Department of Education's bank elves took their last withdrawal from my bank account. I am now debt-free.
Ok, so, this is not as momentous as it sounds - my parents paid for undergrad at OAM (thank you parents, who are not blog readers, but for the record, I really appreciate it), the master's at MFGAM was fully funded (how to get a fully funded master's: start a PhD, then quit), and I got in-state tuition and some grant money for MSGAM. But I did have to take out one loan along the way - and now it's gone! Woo!
Also, I think the government now owes me $200, thanks to some confusion about the scheduled payments. Hm. I hope they pay that back.
