If we start repaying student loans in May, is it a wise decision to dump as much cash into them upfront as possible? I’m a second year, and I have ~$40K in savings. I wanted to buy a house (hence the cash), but that doesn’t look like it will happen in this market. I’m wondering if I should just put $30-35k into my loans instead. I have ~120K of debt.

If you had an interview referred to as a “screening,” would you assume it was with HR and not the hiring manager? I was super caught off guard, but maybe I shouldn’t have assumed?

Currently have the FRM title.
I failed CFA level 3 once.

I'm hoping to eventually do CAIA, but only after I'm done with CFA. I'm also hoping to do non-financial certifications, like Certified analytics professional (CAP), and learn about web development.

While I may have the title of manager, I am still an individual contributor. The type of work I do involves quantitative analysis/data analysis/science.

Any suggestions as to what I should start with?
