On student loans, almost all the advice I see given is telling borrowers to get on income-based repayment plans.  Do you think this is good advice?  Why or why not?  Would you do an IBR plan as a Mustachian?

Right now, I'd just wait and see who gets elected and what becomes of the SL crisis.

As with everything, there's good reasons for IBR and good reasons against IBR. I don't see a blanket answer fitting everything. It's dependent on your situation cashflow, expected earnings, etc.
