It looks like my savings account has gone down to 1.7% and I am going to ditch it and get another savings account I see that is offering 2.2%.

It sounds like a personal loan is the way to go, especially if you can walk out in 30 minutes with $25,000, although I would not take aloan out with 9% interest.. I'd just open up as many credit cards as I can. Indeed, I have been transferring balances on credit cards for a while since I had the money in the savings anyway, there was not much point in just paying it off when it is just money down the drain.
Do you realize how little all this shifting around is actually getting you?

$6000 at 1.7% for one year = $103
$6000 at 2% for one year = $121
$6000 at 2.2% for one year = $133

Surely your time is worth more than twelve bucks?

If it can buy me 6 months of study time, it could land me a $200k job vs $60k job.. People pay a lot more on student loans for much less benefits.
