Many years ago, I was standing on the sidelines of a soccer game (where much of my mom time was spent back then), visiting with a friend/ soocer dad. He's a highly respected surgeon, head of a hospital residency program, travels all over the world for work and fun, all that good stuff. He told me that he had just made his last payment for his last student loan. The lender had asked him for years and years if he wouldn't like to go ahead and pay it off, but he always said no, it was the cheapest payment for anything at all that he had. He was 58.
