Do you know what the tuition is at Columbia? It's not cheap! to say the least. Where did he get money for tuition? Student Loans? Maybe.

Do you have any idea what tuition is for Harvard Law School? Where did he get the money for Law School? More student loans?
I realize that financial aid may be a difficult concept, but shouldn't she know about it if her daughters actually went to college?

And both the Obamas did, in fact, have a lot of student loans. She's spoken about that.

Hasn't he said many times he used the advance from his first book to pay off the student loans which were substantial?
