Congrats. I’m down to just a few months away from paying mine off which is going to feel amazing. Not med school level but I paid 100% of my tuition and expenses with loans. Wish I could go back and change that a bit.

Congrats, huge accomplishment.

Don’t forget to provide good care, there is a reason people pay so much for it

Wow, congrats!

If you don't mind me asking, how long were you paying?

ETA: I just took control of my (new)wife's finances and her loans were all over the place. She had several loans that were on insane payback schedules, several with high interest. Recently, I refinanced all high interest loans with Sofi and shortened the payback schedules on several others. I'm hoping we are finished paying everything back in about 10 years. That would be roughly 13 years as a physician. Hope we're not too far behind.

I have about 3-4 years left for my PA loans, 1800$ a month will be a nice raise

I got out of residency in 2012 and paid them off in just under 6 years, but my Med school was relatively cheap and we paid extra every month and I used my tax return to go ahead and pay it off

A tax return is what you send the IRS. If you overpaid, then they send you a refund.

You used your REFUND to pay it off

My loan was split up into 6 different loans, some at 3.4% and some at 6.8%. With my tax REFUND we were able to pay them all off, so we did.

I've got around 6k left on mine. If I'm aggressive I can have them paid off by the end of this year, or at least have them wittled down significantly. I started at 40k+, so just seeing the light at the end of the tunnel feels nice.

Congrats!

We've paid off about 40% of my wife's med student loans in the last 2.5 years while she's in residency. Refinancing has saved us alot.

I was hoping to we knock them out next year when she finishes residency, but alas she's doing a NICU Fellowship so it may be a while longer.
