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?

If you only match the long term market growth, you'll make 10.5-11% on your investments - buying S&P500 index funds or Depository Receipts should match that. If you pay attention to the information available at the Fool, you should do even better. You're a Fool, so you are responsible for your own decisions. But investing looks like a good bet.
