I'm on the 3 year plan.

No loans 😎

I did refinancing through sofi and got a 3% rate, so not in a hurry at all :)

I did too but then they sold to Mohela, so it's a creeping up :(

Are the sofi rates variable? What are they, the Countrywide of student loans?

@PwC2 Mohela is just the service provider SoFi uses. @PwC1 those rates are variable - mine started at 3.5% and has crept up lately as its tagged to LIBOR. The fixed rates start around 5%.

9 years and still paying

2 years.

Hello guys,

I am working in Sales and Distribution in one of the Payments bank. (BFSI industry 😞) It’s been over 13 months. I am not enjoying the work anymore and it’s more of a sales role than marketing. Plus package is also 7 LPA.

I want to switch the industry and am more interested in the digital marketing/ pure marketing field.

I’ve done MBA - marketing. And prior to that did 1 year certificate course in Digital marketing.

How should I proceed ? Any suggestions pls.

I am currently preparing a motion for admission in DC via MBE transfer. I graduated in 2019, admitted in my current jurisdiction in 2020. For anyone who has transferred in to DC with MBE or UBE under rule 46, do you actually need your alma mater to send a certification of graduation? I understand needing one for applicants sitting for the bar exam who are applying before they get a diploma, but It seems weird to need one otherwise. I’m going to contact DC bar but thought I’d ask here too.
