Cindy Zuniga went to law school to make an impact in her community. After three years in law school and $215,000 of debt later, Cindy realized the real cost of her decision. Her first year out of school she paid $24,000 towards her student loans. However, only $4,000 went towards her loan’s principal balance. 

So where did the other $20,000 go, you ask? To pay just the interest on her loan. 

That’s when Cindy said enough is enough and devised a plan to pay off all of her debt in 48 months.
