I get that risk aversion might lead you to want the IBR safety net, but at a certain point you're paying more than that's worth. IMO a 4% interest rate reduction is past that point.
Obviously if you intend to stay in private practice for the long term and can get a 4% reduction it's a pretty easy choice. But for someone set on getting into some kind of PI or government work after a couple of years in Biglaw keeping the PSLF option open is pretty important.
Also very important to note. But for some reason I don't get the impression Big Shrimpin is on that track.
