Drowning in Student Debt

Suzie Dundas, 23, owes $30,000 in student loans. She can barely afford to make the monthly payments with her part-time job at the State Department. To make ends meet, she's about to move back in with her parents in suburban Poolesville, where she'll have a three-hour daily commute -- but no rent.
