Also have a job interview tomorrow with my HF namesake. Pretty pumped.
You should likely pay off your credit card before putting money towards your student loans(unless it was the mandatory payment). Even still, if you're running a balance on your CC you should have your student loan re-payments reduced to the minimum amount until you're CC is paid off. CC's interest rates are way higher than student loans and plus the amount of interest you pay on your student loan you can claim 15% of it on your taxes.

Also congrats on the interview, what type of position is it with them?
