Thanks for the mention, Isaac.

I think it's worth mentioning (though it's clear if you follow my blog) that I don't regret out these grad school debts.

Of course, it's an issue, but art school students aren't the only ones working with it.

Ultimately, I've found that it's not limitations that make you who are, but what you do with the limitations.

Or as the keynote speaker (Peter Farelly) at my MFA commencement said, 'You've got debt. Get used to it. That's the way it works sometimes."


Thanks for writing about this. Graced by Tisch debt as well, but I don't regret my training.


I am also saddled with grad school debt. Though I have it under control, I DO feel like it motivates me when I hear those voices in the back of my head (or from insensitive family members) urging me to quit theater and do something solid that pays.

Somehow (and maybe it's me) it's a very tangible reminder of how much I want to do this: I sold myself to Sallie Mae for the next 25 years, and I don't regret it.

Of course, having that extra money each month would be really great, esp with being newly married and holding out hopes of living a middle class lifestyle with kids and vacations and the like. My life just isn't going to unfold in the same way that it will for my friends with MBAs, and that's OK.
