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?
The negative to my student loan is that it's a bank loan, and I dropped out before graduation. Just realized that I wasn't doing what I wanted to do, and figured it wasn't worth wasting another 5-10 thousand dollars on. I'm not sure that I'd qualify for tax relief. I paid off my MC already, but my Visa still carries a good $900 or so, which really sucks. I get a lot of pressure from my aunt on the loan. She's my co-signer.

Looking to join flight crew. Get a chance to fly, and get a foot in the door with them for when I finish my maintenance degree. I did baggage handling and ramp services for them for a year while I worked for Servisair, but it's not really the same as being an actual employee.
