  1. Wow, all of the people in your “who refinances?” Infographic make an enormous amount of money. It looks like I’m sticking with my government Income Based Repayment plan.

  2. Why do all of the profiles make so much money? Are people with average incomes eligible for refinancing? I have an undergraduate degree with a steady job making $50k and $16k in federal student loans can I refinance?
