    Well, it’s certainly not as difficult as the Marine Corps Boot Camp. But as to your question regarding paying off $25,000 in credit card debt, it really is important what your interest rate is. And then you need to find out how much you can pay per month at a maximum. That’s going to be based upon your cost of living and your take-home pay. But from my understanding, you will probably take about 7.3 years if you continue to make the minimum monthly payment of $500. You need to triple that to increase the pay off time. And you certainly can’t afford your dream car until you’re about 31 years old. Because you need to save up money to pay for one.

    My concern, Mark, is that as soon as you graduate from the Coast Guard Boot Camp you’re going to walk on to some slimy used car dealership and get taken advantage of.
