I just got the papers from my lender to sign......
i'll be reviewing in detail over the weekend.....my current loan amount is 340k and he said that if i want to make the loan only under my name (currently, it's under me and my girlfriend's name), i would have to lower the debt to income ratio and put another 10k towards principle.

SO.......330k loan at 4.75%. 30years fixed. (180PMI is dropped. previous rate was 5.25%. payment will be 2200 instead of 2550)

planning on staying in the house for at least 10 years so it seems to make sense. but should i wait for rates to go lower? any thoughts?

Hmm, I would jump on saving $350 a month. Rates could go lower, but they could go higher instead. The value of your home could also drop, so think about that. You have a good deal in your hands, I say go for it.
Now, on the girlfriend issue, that is a sticky situation. Normally I wouldn't recommend putting it in both of your names if you are not married, but that is up to you. Does she pay 50% of your current mortgage and utilities?
