It's no secret that the stupidly high cost of college is weighing down younger generations. We were told to take out student loans so we could land a good job and stability. But it hasn't shaped out like that for many of us.

So, we want to know: People who regret going into debt for college, how much money do you make now?

Maybe you studied art in college, and while you loved it, that degree didn't help you make money after graduation. Maybe you're an administrative assistant making $18/hour, working on your art during nights and weekends, and you constantly worry about paying all your bills.

Perhaps you're a teacher who makes $50,000/year. You love working with kids, but you don't know how much longer you can be expected to pay for student supplies out of your own pocket. You're seriously considering leaving your job because you don't know if you'll ever be able to afford a house with your current income.

Or, maybe you have $250,000 in debt after you flunked out of dental school. You ended up working as an office manager making $63,000/year, and you don't know how you'll ever pay off your loans.
