If you didn't consolidate your loan then that may be the case. Once you consolidate, the amount you owe is fixed and you can't pay down your interest.
I remember that there was more than one loan at the end because I know I paid one or two off and almost all of another.
The thing is, I also distinctly remember turning several loans into one after I graduated.
There was so much going on then, like child support, sick parents, new job, new residences, girlfriend family problems, girlfriend's kids, and more stuff that I can't remember. Odd to look back on all that and realize here was hardly any substance use, let alone abuse, and it's STILL a blur.
