The "duh" comes from AICPA Insights:

According to a new survey conducted for the AICPA by Harris Interactive, only 39% fully understood the burden student loan debt would place on the future and 60% have at least some regret over the choice of education financing.  Furthermore, 75% have made a personal or financial sacrifice–such as delaying a home purchase and postponing marriage and children–because of monthly student loan payments.
