Lots of financial institutions can help you with consolidating
You can only do consolidating once but only after you finish studying

[10:13] Why you should refinance
If you have a high interest rate on a loan- your loan can get bought out by another bank of financial institution
Works out cheaper for you as it gets you a lower interest rate
Works for all kinds of debt- great to take advantage of when rates go down in the general economy

[12:42] The problem with deferring your loans & minimum payments
People do this because they don’t have the money and you gotta do what you gotta do
However, don’t make it a habit!
You don’t want to pay minimums because in the long run you end up owing a ton more.
Your student loans will end up increasing in value
