I created a startup that helps people pay off their student loans. AMA!
Hi! I’m Andy Josuweit. I graduated from college in 2009 with $74,000 in debt. Then, I defaulted, causing my debt to rise to $104,000. I tried to get help but there just wasn’t a single, reliable resource I felt that I could trust. It was very frustrating. So, in 2012 I founded Student Loan Hero. Our free tools, calculators, and guides are helping 80,000+ borrowers manage and eliminate over $1 billion dollars in student loan debt. AMA!
Update: You guys are awesome! Over 1k comments and counting! Unfortunately (though I really wish I could!), I can’t get to all your questions. Instead, I recommend signing up for a free Student Loan Hero account where you can get customized repayment advice and find answers to your student loan questions. Click here to sign up for free.
I will be wrapping this up at 5 pm EST.
Update #2: Wow, I'm blown away (and pretty exhausted). It's 5 pm ET so we're going to go ahead and wrap this up. Thanks to everyone for asking questions!
