She just graduated summa cum laude , after three years of legal training that left her $115,000 in debt. Part of that debt, which she will take a decade to repay with interest, was run up at Starbucks, where she buys her lattes….

I love how it’s the career services person who’s all aghast at the lattes. Shouldn’t she be doing something useful … like finding students jobs?!

Seriously, bigger issues here than $3/day spent on coffee.
