I just can't see how one could justify this

My wife is a Dr. now, and I'm on a career path to likely be a VP at the private company for whom I work. I had about $16k from undergrad and just got my MBA for another $31k. I think we'll be alright. Otherwise, I wouldn't have opted for what will be close to a $4,000, five year note after the five years of interest only expires.

re: Refinance Student Loans


My wife will be close to $175,000 in the hole after her medical degree. Just talking about student loans triggers a headache. And yes, that's a normal amount for people in her line of work.

Even with what she's expected to make, that's going to be a very difficult payment.

Sounds like you did the smart thing and married money.

I married an ambitious woman that wanted to be a Dr. If I married money, then I probably wouldn't be in a student loan discussion.

Still good to know that if you ever need to be bailed out, y'all have a security blanket.

Its called a Top 50 law school and the illusion of grandeur.

Not to mention the market tanked as we were enrolling. It was somewhat justifiable when firm jobs were being handed out before you even started your 3L year.

The result, as of now, is a job that pays me 40K and rising more than what I would have made with my undergrad degree. However, there were 3 years I wasn't working of lost income. Tempered by loan repayments of course.


No disrespect intended, but this illustrates why students have to pay 6.5% while the feds borrow for far less.

Ya, individuals are a bit less stable than the government that can gobble up 25% of my income because it wants to. Makes them a bit less risky.
