Does it make more sense to:

1) Pay down some of the principal on a student loan with 20+ more years on it that has an interest rate of 5%


2) Simply invest the money somewhere and hope to earn >5%

What would you do?

Bonus question: Are there options to refinance student loans that were already consolidated about 5 years ago? I bet I could do better than 5% today.

Much thanks,
