Just a quick personal note on my progress towards paying off my student loan debt. This week my USAA Career Starter Loan went below $10,000! You can see the screenshot below.
I'm having trouble finding how much the loan grew to before I started making payments, but I believe it was around $26,800. That means I've made over $16,800 in payments since Dec 2010. I'm continuing to make payments of $750/month, which is $279 more than the $471 minimum payment.
