Financial State of a College Graduate

There are certain allotments that people stick to when talking about finances, and when it comes to the preparedness for entering college, only 32% are really prepared financially to graduate and 56% were not that much prepared of graduating from college.

The Role of Debt

Debts will never be eradicated from one’s financial reports, and out of 500 people 60% have debts. Most of the people who have debts are due to their credit cards and next are student loans.

With this in mind, the number of people who are sealing with debts is, somehow, increasing.
