    I was wondering what options I have in terms of my undergraduate loans. I'll have a year off between undergrad and med school and I assume Uncle Sam will be looking to collect the money he loaned me. If I start repaying will I have to continue paying once I start med school? Does undergrad debt get combined with med school loans? Should I take advantage of and lock in my loans at "the all time low interest rate" now? Public vs. private repayment instituitons?

    Once you're back in school, you don't have to pay undergrad loans. However, the interest on unsubsidized loans will continue to run. I think you may be able to defer your loan payments during that year between undergrad and med school. There's also a six month grace period after graduation until you have to start paying your loans. Hope this helps.
