I'm starting to gear up for my interviews and I'm trying to get my financial house in order. One thing that has me confused is whether or not loans always make sense. I'm pretty fortunate to have a fairly high-paying job right now. I'm a nontrad ~6 years out of college, and I have been heavily investing since college. I'm at a point where I can likely pay off all 4 years of medical school out of my investments if I can sell my house for the value I'm estimating it to be next year, but it will be tight. My concern here is that there might be certain perks of having loans that I'm not aware of. For example, I would hate to burn through my investments to pay for tuition, only to find that a job offering loan reimbursements is no longer an available perk. Then again, rates for loans are like 7% right now, so I'm not sure it makes any sense to not pay them off immediately. Am I missing anything?
