PAYE isn't always the best match when going for PSLF. If you are married and both have student loans, here's the math that may save you thousands.
Benjamin Meyer has put together a financial survival guide for his fellow interns about consolidating student loans, RePaye options, retirement savings and more! If you only have time to read one post as an intern, make it this one.
