Student Loans


Hey everyone, it’s time for my weekly post. I was going to originally write about update to the Value Cost Ratio. However, it’s Match Week for the NRMP Match, so I figured it was better to talk about that. So today we’re going to talk about “Congratulations, you have matched!” Congratulations, you have matched! Many medical students should have received this email on Monday. I don’t want to reiterate things too much, so I’ll refer […]

Congratulations, you have matched! #MatchDay2021 #medtwitter


Hey everyone, it’s Monday – the day before I start my shift tomorrow. This marks the 3rd week in a row that I’ve kept up with blogging. Baby steps… 2021? Yea, today’s post is just some introspection on my goals for 2021. 2020 was a rough year and so far, 2021 hasn’t seemed much better. That said, I am still cautiously optimistic. Coronavirus It would be impossible to comment on the 2020 (and now 2021) […]

2021 – The Year of Optimism?

As such, I’ve […]

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. This is just a short post highlighting how student loans will be affected by Coronavirus. The TL;DR from Forbes is: Ability to pause payment on your federal student loans until September 30, 2020. No interest on your federal student loan payments through September 30, 2020. Stops garnishment of wages, Social Security and tax refunds for student loan debt collection. This is a good thing. I’m glad something like this was done to […]

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today, “Let’s Talk About the SECURE Act“. The SECURE Act I mentioned it before a little while ago in a previous post. However, it just recently passed through both Congress and the Senate, and Trump signed it into law this week. There is a lot of little things in this act, but long story short, the general public is behind in regards to retirement. This act is going to […]
