I agree with Zubair, that is a lot of debt. I'm guessing that is in the US as tuition costs seem to be going through the roof. IT could be a good field, but I have to ask something. School should be an INVESTMENT, so if you are going to rack up $100K worth of debt you should have a plan to pay it off. (ie Med school, law school, etc.), some way that you can make enough money to pay back that $100K. If these are people who have that much debt just from an undergraduate degree, wow, that's a ton of debt! Hope they find something!
I would also say, doing something on the side would be a very good option. Start your own business, whether online or not. There is always room for entrepreneurs!
