I went through five years of college, three in expensive NYC, without any credit cards. I knew that credit card debt would be too overwhelming with everything else during school. At times, when I saw other students with better stuff, I wished I had credit cards. But, in hindsight, I was not without what I needed and some things I desired, through hard work and paying cash. I did not establish credit until I was 27. That was a little more frustrating. It did seem that it was worse to have no credit vs. bad credit. Within three years, having read books on the subject and focusing, I had a strong credit score. More importanly, I have had managable debt. I think this new bill could prove a good idea in the interest of our young people.
