ISU chemistry Professor John Hansen said Yoder did "very well'' in school but rarely spoke of his debt. However, it took him several years to finish his master's thesis in chemistry, increasing his loan total.
When he graduated in summer 2006, he was unable to find a job despite sending out dozens of resumes. Meanwhile, he watched his loan balance grow. He moved back in with his mom, who lives in a small trailer home in Normal.
....That could tip potential employers to his credit woes. Collinge said many employers won't hire people with bad credit.
How can you guys make fun of him? he was a good student, and he was poor. It wasnt his fault. In this case, it was the school!
