Okay so I plan on going to pa shcool when I turn 27. After college I worked for a health department and now I’m going to work as a clinical dietitian for a year or so and take classes. So ideally I would apply in 2019 and then start in 2020. At that point I’ll be 27. Is that too old to start to start ??
i am coming up on contract negotiations. Most likely I plan on staying. I have been here for 5 years and really like it, mainly because of who I work for/with. Something that would help me progress financially would be paying down student loans. I am already at a high salary and get some bonuses. The only thing I could think of that would improve the money situation would be some sort of loan repayment. Ideally, tax free for me and clinic, money goes directly to loan, lowers principle and overall cost of loan, and I still write off loan interest. I do understand there are some tax codes against this but it is changing. (https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/108/text)
I have run into another option through https://studentloangenius.com/. Does anyone have experience with them?
Any other creative options to minimize tax implications but still drive money to loans? I would even accept slight decrease in salary for larger amount to loans IF there were also tax benefits.
I will soon be starting PA school in the fall. I am currently looking at several routes of paying off my future student debt and thought about jobs that help with loan repayment. How rare is it to come across jobs that will help pay off student debt? If so, how much do they typically help out with?
I have decided start on this beautiful journey of becoming a Physician Assistant. I will be graduating spring 2018 and I have decided to apply that summer. This means that if I get accepted into PA school I will resume my studies June 2019 (depending on the school).
However, I have something I can't get off my head. Loan REPAYMENT.
After I graduate college I have a 6 month period to start repaying my undergraduate loans. Of course I plan to work for that whole year and study a bit. But I don't know if I can afford to pay large amounts of loan repayments during that gap year. Is it possible that once I start my studies as a PA I will be able to "suspend" my payments until I am done with my studies?
I am sure I am not the only student on this position, so let me know with previous experiences!
