What is your story about again? Low-rate consolidation or extending the time out farther? Both. I get to lock in at 4.25% on $58K+ of loans.Why are you saving money for the first time in 9 years?My consolidation's going to save me over $900 a month in payments which I can then save and invest ($1600+ / mo. ---> $300+ / mo.) As for the 9+ years part, it's composed of 3 years of law school, about a year of studying for and taking Bar exams while working part-time, 2+ years working at a low-paying mill firm that resulted in my loans going into default, and 3+ years working at a better (though still low) paying firm which has allowed me to rehabilitate my loans and bay my bills with rather little left over each month.
