AbstractCharlie O'Conner is finishing the spring quarter of his junior year at Santa Clara University. During his undergraduate career, he has switched his major from philosophy to economics, and now needs to spend an extra year in school to earn his degree. The question is, how is he going to manage to pay for this final year - over $37,00 - by himself? He is thinking about getting a student loan, but he is not sure if he is going to be able to pay it off. Should he switch schools to a cheaper university? What should he do?
