Zak family faces the down side of college debt

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – “The counselors at my high school said that I should go to college,” said Aaron Zak. “They scared me into it because I was young and didn’t know what I was doing.”

His mother, Suzette Zak had taken a few college courses but never got a degree.

She was thrilled that her sons – Aaron, 26 and his younger brother, Adam, 24 – wanted to go to college

“I feel really bad for encouraging them,” she said.

These days, she watches helplessly as her sons struggle to repay some $70,000 in student loans between them.
