Dear Fools -

My husband and I have combined student loan debts of over 70K (medical school) financed at 7.5%. Should we wait to invest until we have paid off all our debt? That would take us a while. Or should we invest now and take advantage of the time value of money (we are in our late 20s)?

We are currently only contributing to a 401K, at the maximum amount.

We are looking for foolish advice. Are their any fools out there who can relate to our predicament???
