Subject:  Student loans vs Roth? Date:  7/18/2001  11:18 PM

That's right, I'm 10 weeks "fresh" out of college. (But I'm not past my expiration date, yet. Just noone's bought me from the grocer's shelf.)

Obviously, I've got to get rid of my CC debt first. But then what? I'll probably have a 401k started w/ my employer. (Seems most employers have that option for Engrs.) Should I get my Roth started before I work on majorly killing off my student loans? Or is there something else that I'm missing?

Thoughts? Experiences? I'm not too fond of this student loan that's been with me since the beginning of my "4-year" education. How much should I let it bug me?

(4 years? HA!!!)

Thanks for your input!
