  10. Should I take out student loans to invest? (07/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    For context, I am going into my last year of college and at the moment I have a total of 5k in unsubsidized student loans. Thanks to various grants and student aid all my schooling has been basically free besides paying to live in the dorms on campus and for a meal plan my freshman year. Right now I have an extra 5k of unsubsidized loans I could accept for this year at an interest rate of 2.75%. This money would go straight to me so would it not be smart to accept this and put it in the market? The interest rate is guaranteed for the life of the loan and if we were to see student loan forgiveness up to 10k It would be free money right? After simulating borrowing on the student aid website the monthly payments on a sum of 10k would be 50-70 a month. My first payment is not due for 2 years and my loans do not occur interest until I graduate. Am I being dumb or is this just free money? The interest rate barely beats inflation.   submitted by   /u/Auggie124 [link]   [comments]
