How to Attack your Student Loans Debt and Refiance

You are probably looking at your massive student loans right now, thinking to yourself, “How the heck did I take this much out? This is the price of a freaking house”. The sad reality is that the average optometry student take out a whooping average of $200,000 for optometry school and will likely be in debt for the next 20 years.


The United state student debt crisis exceeds $1.3 trillion for 2018 and has been an epidemic in society, shunting the growth of many young professionals. This forces new and talented doctors to live at home with their parents because they cannot to afford to pay rent or begin to think about buying a house. This in turns, delays this young generation in starting a family simply because they can’t barely take care of themselves.


What do most optometrists normally do? Pay the minimum amount for 20+ years, hoping that our government will miraculously forgive their loans after 20-25 years. This is sadly the norm. Don’t be normal, normal sucks. Normal people don’t get rich or become wildly successful.
