Student Loans...Checked

No more student loan debts, we just paid off my wife's student loan.
9 years and 11 months later, it's done.

Awesome!
I paid off my school loans in January, and it took me about 7.5years. It's a great feeling, and now the money that you used for school loans can go to something else. Woohoo.

Congrats! How does it feel to have that monkey off of your back?

Like Dave Ramsey would say kicking Sallie Mae out of your spare bedroom. in my case it wasn't sallie mae as she's been out of my crib since last October.

I'm glad AES is no longer in my list of payees with their 10% interest.

congratulations! I am very jealous. How much did you have to pay back and what was your strategy for achieving it, I would love to know!
