When Sean Butcher successfully rehabilitated his defaulted student loan debt last November, he breathed a sigh of relief before quickly realizing that his problems were not exactly behind him, the Tulsa World reports.

He found that nine months of putting nearly every penny possible into the loans had turned what had originally been $32,000 in debt into just less than $30,000. His credit score had been docked severely, and he discovered that the default now showed up on background checks, nearly costing him a job opportunity, according to the Tulsa World.
