i need some advice on whether or not i should pay off my college loans as quickly as possible or start investing the money instead...

i have some thoughts that i should pay my loans since the market is down

should i be feeling pressure to pay off my loans--close to 23,000 dollars

or should i just pay the regular amount plus extra when i can.

or should i just put the money i save into a money market account at 6.25%.

i have a good income so i will be able to save a substantle amount--

i appreciate any thoughts you all might have on this

thanks
