    Eloy officially got paid

    Yeah my old man has expressed some of the same sentiment. But you know how it goes, stairs on the way up, elevator on the way down. Just gotta have cash in hand for the down payment when the music stops.

    Very cool you're set on moving the family to Nashville man. Everybody loves that place. My folks are also looking to move down there as well. Wait til that RE market gets corrected though! They've had bonanza growth there.

    Why did the Sox trade for Nova who makes $8m and moves needle for no one.

    I don't see it worthwhile to take personally either.

    He failed to mention the grievance of his teammate (which occured when McHugh was with Houston) and the fact that the Astros will inevitably send down the top pitching prospect in baseball in Forrest Whitley (if they haven't already). To single out the Sox specifically when they're subjected to the same rules as everyone else and operating in the same manner as everyone else is questionable.

    Wow. Yeah, that's what you would think the government would charge their youth for education loans.

    I am aware that people with the same majors have different careers/lives. If you think people don't get their lives ruined by student loans I don't know what to tell you. While they may not leave you with nothing like getting foreclosed on would with mortgage loan, that doesn't mean they're not crippling. It's like you're arguing the cocaine is okay because heroin is worse. It is the same thinking to the housing crisis is what I said. I didn't say the pitfalls are the same. I was using an example and you know that. I wasn't speaking about your career specifically. The current system does not work. If you look at the lowest earning majors Poly Sci is up there. If you would feel comfortable giving an 18 year old loans to get a degree that he/she needs another degree to be successful so be it. I would prefer giving loans to a kid trying to get an engineering degree. But I am trying to look at this in whole as opposed to my specific situation.

    So we should all suffer so all the baristas can have a degree while they have anchors of student debt they'll never get out of? This is the exact kind of reckless and supposedly virtuous lending that led to the housing crisis. Making people entitled to things that they will never be able to afford is not helping them.

    Whoopdie doo. I am sure the 29-year-old Poly Sci grad making 35k a year can take solace in the education level of the country while they wallow in debt with no foreseeable end as the government benefits off of the decision they made following their prom dance.

    This is what I figured. Thanks for confirming. The goods news is you certainly have plenty to gain assuming your credit isn't a mess. I would not recommend going through chase. If you're interested in what I did I can take a look at my folder on my personal computer and send you some notes when I get home. PM me if you're interested. In the mean time, if you have one dollar over the your standard monthly autopay make sure it is going to the the highest interest rate in the Navient account. You've repeatedly replied to another poster saying "complete nonsense" and then post the bolded. The government is making money off of the young people in this country. It is not an investment, it is a cash grab that has lead to tuition prices skyrocketing as a result of them skewing the supply and demand for college. If you're a home owner, do you think the bank that processed your mortgage invested in you?

    I think my loans are middle to lower end of average but of course my inquiry here is trying to gauge exactly that. Are you under the impression that student loan interest affects the state tax bill you are given? What exactly are refi opportunities that does mess with you credit score? I am not getting money from my parents or family if that's what you mean. They're all government. Even when I refi'd I used a government bank.

    4.3% seems astoundingly high? My grad loans that I applied for when I had 40k in debt from undergrad were bonkers but I quickly refinanced those.
