    You are not the only one.
    I made that same decision years ago. A guaranteed job/income to payoff college debt while gave up other chance/opportunity.
    I got a little lucky a year later because of a very understanding/good boss. He was a 2 months new boss (old boss left) to the yearly review date. He look up my stuff and the first word he asked me "What they pay you less than a QA"? I'm a programmer. Within 2 month working together, of course he knews what I could and couldn't do. Well, the paycheck after the next, my salary was double. I mean 100% increase. Well, that was during the dot boom. The boss got layoff year later including other 60% of the staff. I also got layoff 4 months later with the rest of the staff. The company shutdown the door a month after.
    During that almost 3 years with the company, I was able to payoff 10K CC, 15K student loan, and some $$ borrow from parents years ago for the purchase of the Supra. And able to save enough for a house down payment. I was able to do that cuz I own a freaking reliable car. Do most of the maintainance, repair work myself. No drinking, no clubbing (little party here and there), no carPC yet , no gold-digger g/f. I live with my parent and paid their mortgage (in return of the money I borrowed before).
    Another lucky thing I have was haven't go into unemployment yet. I was able to get the current job before getting layoff from the previous one with a huge drop in salary. Well that was much, much better than getting unemployment check. And you know, it really tuff to get programming job in Socal after 9/11. In fact, I was working 2 fulltime jobs for a bout a month. Man that was tuff.

    wizardPC, kudos to your debt reduction process.

    We're getting married in June of 2008, so I'll be debt free for about a year when we get hitched. Unfortunately, all my extra money from being debt free will be going to cashflow the wedding.
