I'm new here and I am in the process of paying off my unsecured debt, a car payment, a $1000 medical judgment and some medical debt that is in collections. I should have all this squared away by the end of 2015. Once that is complete I will staill have close to $120000 in student loans that will be in deferment. Unfortunately I will not be able to make a dent in that student loan debt for some time as I will still be in school and then I might only be able to make the minimum payments once I start my career.
How is that student loan debt going to be looked at when they look at my overall credit score? Do they treat student debt separarately compared to medical, secured, and unsecured debt?
I'm excited to remove the other debt by 2015 but that excitement doesn't really last when I think about the outstanding student debt.
