I started law school almost ten years ago, took out about $180k in principal and paid about another $50k in interest but they're finally going to be totally cleared out next week. It will be one of the single greatest days of my life, next to my wedding, the birth of my two kids, and my first date with my wife. I'll even put it ahead of the day I got home from my mission. Amazingly, my student loans were only about 3 months old the last time BYU beat Utah.
Not meant as a brag, just really excited and this isn't something I share with people I know in person.
