Subject:  45K in Student Loans - How can I save interest? Date:  1/14/2015  11:05 PM

Hi Fools,

I have one year left of Grad School and will have around 45k in student load debt - I will be finished in January 2016. Currently I make random payments when I feel like it - nothing consistent or significant.

Below is what I just pulled from my lenders website - some are subsidized and most are not.

It is really frustrating that some of these loans are accruing interest and I want to know what my best plan of attack is.

1. Are there any options to consolidate these loans to one lender and get a competitive fixed interest rate? My credit score is in the high 7's....or any options that will help minimize my interest charges.

As always you all are life savers!
