How are you paying for college?
I'm 29, finishing a Master's program in Rangeland Ecology and Management. I'm down to thesis writing, so I haven't been a full time student for a bit and my student loan grace period is up. I have about $40,000 in student loans, APR 6.8%. I have no income at the moment, but I'm optimistic that I will be finished with school and have a job by May. So I'm not worried about making minimum payments, possibly making big payments depending on the quality of the job.
Thing is, I happen to have about $17,000 just sitting in a Roth IRA. Does it make economic sense to be sitting on this when I have a sizable debt?
The student loans are the only debt I have.
