Sidestepping Student Debt Graduating from college with limited financial debt remains a challenge in these hard economic times. According to experts, the average student uses student loans to pay for school and then carries a median debt of $35,000 upon graduation. It is a significant sum for any recent graduate. The annual college tuition for a typical private school exceeds $50,000. Students attending those schools accrue crippling debt by the end of college. How is a recent college graduate supposed to pay back such a debt? The hourly minimum wage hardly covers the rent in urban areas across the country, leaving graduates scrambling to cover loans and other expenses. Finding entry-level corporate jobs is difficult for young graduates without career experience. Nonetheless, banks do not hesitate long before demanding payment on school loans. Smart students everywhere are refusing to accept the unwritten law that attending college results in overwhelming debt. Instead, these smart students sidestep serious college debt before college even begins. One way to avoid a hefty college loan is to start thinking about that debt before applying to colleges. Savvy students consider not only the schools that offer the best education, but also those schools with reasonable tuition rates that fit within a set budget. Budgeting requires a breakdown of all school expenses. It also ensures students that they will be able to pay for tuition without the use of student loans. Even those students who work within a budget may find it necessary to take out a small student loan to ease the burden of paying outright for college. The monthly payback rates of those loans need to be considered carefully. Wherever possible, the payback rate should be relative to a student’s projected income upon graduation. For example, students can calculate the monthly salary of their chosen profession and make sure it adequately covers their monthly loan payback. If a salary projection covers the monthly loan amount, then the student can feel safe in taking on the loan. Another way smart students avoid serious debt is by applying for scholarships. Landing a scholarship is as easy as filling out a form. These awards range from minimal, such as a token gift of a few dollars per semester, to significant, such as complete tuition remission. Some scholarships award excellence in nonacademic activities, such as sports and the arts. Students use scholarship monies to pay for schoolrelated expenses such as books, academic equipment, and computers. © 2016 K12 Inc. All rights reserved.

One such way is through student employment services. College students can work on campus in jobs ranging from tutoring and assisting in campus offices to more difficult jobs, such teaching classes through a teaching fellowship. Jobs like these can reduce tuition or provide direct income for students. All students can use extra pocket money, and campus employment can offer both immediate and long-term financial help. Avoiding crippling college debt is crucial. It requires smart thinking before school begins in September. It requires careful forethought and active planning. It requires a thorough understanding of career-level salaries and typical real-life expenses after college. Scholarship money and campus employment offer financial help with tuition and other college expenses. By following the example of smart students everywhere, college applicants can avoid overwhelming student loan debt before applying to schools. (Score for Question 2: ___ of 20 points) 2.

excerpt from Julius Caesar
by William Shakespeare
Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones;
So let it be with Caesar. The noble Brutus
Hath told you Caesar was ambitious:
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And grievously hath Caesar answer'd it.
Here, under leave of Brutus and the rest-For Brutus is an honourable man;
So are they all, all honourable men-Come I to speak in Caesar's funeral.
He was my friend, faithful and just to me:
But Brutus says he was ambitious;
And Brutus is an honourable man.
He hath brought many captives home to Rome

Whose ransoms did the general coffers fill:
Did this in Caesar seem ambitious?
When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept:
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff:
Yet Brutus says he was ambitious;
And Brutus is an honourable man.
You all did see that on the Lupercal
I thrice presented him a kingly crown,
Which he did thrice refuse: was this ambition?
Yet Brutus says he was ambitious;
And, sure, he is an honourable man.
I speak not to disprove what Brutus spoke,
But here I am to speak what I do know.
You all did love him once, not without cause:
What cause withholds you then, to mourn for him?
O judgment! thou art fled to brutish beasts,
And men have lost their reason. Bear with me;
My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar,
And I must pause till it come back to me.

Personification is first used when the author states that the evil that men do continues to live after
they die. This statement personifies the evil and is thus a caution to the living to stop engaging in evil.
This presents a critical tone on the evils that men do. Personification is also used when the author states
that his heart is in the coffin where Caesar lies and he has to pause his speech until it comes back to him.
This argument presents a sad tone considering that the demise of Cesar has deprived him of joy and his
heart.
Metaphors are also used to advance the theme of the poet.
