Personal finance guru Suze Orman has a message for college students debating whether to take out thousands of dollars in student loan debt to get a master's degree or professional degree: Make sure it's worth it.
“It’s worth it if you emerge with that degree because you know it's what you want to do with your life. And it has to be in a profession where you can pay that loan back,” Orman said during a telephone interview from her home in Boca Raton Thursday night.
Orman flew back from the Philippines, interrupting a worldwide tour to deliver the commencement address Saturday for the UF College of Veterinary Medicine. Her niece, Katelyn Stender, will be among the 87 students graduating from the vet school, said Sarah Carey, director of public relations for the college.
