Conflicting advice out there: paying off student loans early, + or -?
I'm planning on buying a house in the next 2 years. I have a good credit score now. Would it be helpful or hurtful to my score if I start making payments that are larger than my monthly payment due, on STUDENT LOANS. I've read conflicting opinions. Would doing this make my score go up or down?
