My two cents as someone who graduated three years ago and has paid a substantial amount of her loans back would be to find ways to pay the non-traditional way. Find a job or career that not only allows you to take courses, but will pay for them - like institutions of higher education (if you are employed at any college the likelihood is that they'll let you take their courses for free or a small percentage of their price tag). You can also put your loans on pause while you're taking courses in a part-time basis, and pay off these loans without accruing interest.
Seriously - look at a nearby college that's hiring and seek to further your education (get a master's!) for basically free, and simultaneously pay off your loans in a smart way!
