Hello USAA Community,
I am in need of some advice. I graduated medical school, completed a 4 year residency, and a 1 year fellowship. I am finally out and work as an independent physician. I am also struggling with what the best approach is to pay off my $250,000 worth of loans for financing my education. I am currently renting a house and do not plan on buying for quite awhile, as taking on new debt would be disastrous. Another big concern is my family has been faced with infertility and in order for us to have a child, we need to utilize a gestational carrier, which could cost $100,000 or more. We have already gone through the IVF process and have frozen embryos, with all of the medical costs associated with that paid. (thank the lord). What advice could anyone give me as far as a schedule to pay down the medical school debt and secure a loan for $100,000 for a GC?
