Hello! I recently just started a fellowship and after doing my deferment paperwork was wondering if anyone more savvy could help me figure out a few things regarding my loans. I currently have about 150,000 in federal loans with an avg interest rate of about 5.8%. While I am deferring these loans for two years I will accrue about $17,000 more in debt. Can someone help me figure out how much I could prevent accruing if I pay like 200 bucks a month or so to try to keep the interest down? Is doing something like that even going to make a dent? I make about 45,000 during the fellowship so I don't have too much to work with every month, but would like to do something. Thanks in advance for your help.
