21. I am a grad student.
It was a very tough decision to go back to school. The cost is astronomical and 8 years later, I still haven't paid off everything from undergrad. So let's see:

Mortgage crisis - check (thank God I refinanced for a lower interest rate)
Student loan debt - check
Rising energy costs ($300/mo gas & electic bill, $250/mo fuel for car) - check and check
Rising health insurance costs ($354/mo for me + kid) - check

I could go on and on, but I want a candidate who addresses all of these issues and luckily, there are three democratic candidates that do. The questions are, who has the best plan AND who can get a substantive plan passed by Congress? You can have the best plan in the world, but if you can't get Congress to vote for it, then it's really pointless.
