Also, all of the student loans and the MCSE loan qualify for taxable deductions on the interest, is that compelling enough not to try the balance transfers?
response from AGG97
Hmmmm. You can either have the government pay for 25% of your interest (you bear the other 75%), or you can go transfer to a 0% and not pay interest at all? Again, it's a no-brainer.

Agg97 and OP--

Agg97, I have to disagree with you about this being a no-brainer. Loans have all sorts of nice things attached to them, like deferrement or grace periods or forebearance or income-contingent repayments, that the credit cards don't.

It may be good to ask about the perks of student loans on the paying back student loans board...
