I don't know enough about student loans to take a shot at #1. On #2, you've seen varying advice because there isn't a one-size-fits-all rule in this area. I'm assuming that you don't have access to any type of retirement savings "match", as you've said that you're in a private law practic...

BTW if they didn't have wills or update those wills to indicate that they want you to have that house, you are probably SOL. I'll definitely look into this at some point with a lawyer. There is definitely some kind of will, but I haven't read it to confirm what my dad told me. Thanks for the tips.

I know there are several of you on this board that have experience with real estate, so I wanted to ask about a pending and inevitable situation regarding inheriting a house. I am the second-eldest of 3 grandchildren on my dad's side of the family. His parents (my grandparents) have always maintaine...

Brenda, I'm not sure how I missed this post a month ago as I've been lurking on these forums more frequently since, coincidentally, finishing my master's degree in accounting this past May. I don't remember specifically reading your first post but it feels really familiar, and I was reading these bo...

I think it's a deduction, not a credit. So you'd "get back" 25% of it (or whatever your top tax rate is) Oof. You're right. I thought it was a credit. The fact that it's a deduction makes the benefit that much smaller. That makes my decision a little less complicated as I'm not getting a ...

I guess I should have said why I can repay part of the principal on the loan. It's because it (or a large part of it) was disbursed in the last 120 days (the beginning of the current semester). I wouldn't even have known that was possible if the loan servicer hadn't advised me of that. I'm specifica...

Hi, It's been about two years since I've been here. I had just taken out a 0% loan on a new car after my old one was totaled in a hail storm, and wasn't feeling too pleased with myself. About six month after that (June 2011), I was laid off from my job. I wasn't really broken up about losing my job ...

You are right. I was under no obligation to make a claim, but it was not just a few dents. There were several hundred, and that is not an underestimate. The value of the car would have been near $0 from any buyer in its condition after the storm, and I was being offered a check for over $8000. What ...

Well, I had been debt free for nearly a year until last week. I was driving to a class that I am taking in the west valley near Phoenix, AZ. I was stuck in traffic, and mother nature decided to unleash a hail storm on me. I had 80% or more of my car covered in dents from the golf-ball sized hail. My...

I have a question about my credit card. I have a card that I was offered by my bank about four years ago after I graduated from college. My interest rate on this card is 13.24% with a limit of $3000. What I'm trying to figure out is how to go about having something with different rewards without sig...

Thanks for all the tips. I'm going to digest all this as I keep saving. (which can start again once I find out what the bill is for my car that's in the shop right now. ugh.)

I am recently out of debt completely, and it’s time for me to start looking toward the future in terms of buying a house. Right now I’m working on building my emergency fund up to at least 4k before starting to save toward a down payment. My main question is this: What sort of rule of thumb would be...
