29 T ENNESSEE S TUDENT A SSISTANCE C ORPORATION Loan Wisdom Borrow Federal first because they’re cheaper, more available, and have better repayment terms than private student loans. Live like a student while you’re in college so you don’t have to live like one after college. Do not borrow more for your entire education than your expected starting salary after you graduate. If you are borrowing more than $10,000/year for college, consider a less expensive school.
