What Would You Be Willing to Do to Erase Your Student Debt?

One out of seven Americans has student debt. Ask anyone and they’ll agree that the stress in paying it off can be insurmountable. Most people say they’d be willing to do just about anything to get rid of their student debt if asked, so a recent survey got into the specifics to see what people would actually do.

Unsurprisingly, people would be willing to do quite a bit. The results may shock you – or, if you have student debt, you may get where they’re coming from.

LendEDU conducted a February 2016 Student Loan Borrower Survey, posing crazy questions to see what people would be willing to do in return for a clean student debt slate.

Even though these options aren’t actually on the table, it does demonstrate how stressful the accumulation of student debt is.

We’ve listed some of the crazy questions, along with the capability to answer whether or not you’d be willing to go that far in order to erase your student debt.
