Impressive. Were you supporting yourself while you paid it off, too? Really good work. Sorry we are assholes in the US.
Thanks a lot!

Yes, I don’t have a family to support, so I guess that made my finances easier.

Well, not all of you; just the orange one. ;)
Jokes apart, although I was initially disappointed with the news about my visa, I learned to accept it with no hard feelings. And I am definitely planning on visiting again in the future!

Context: I came to the US on a student-visa in 2015 to pursue grad school (Masters in Marketing). Upon graduation, I had a 12-month work-permit (that expired last week) during which I worked in a US-based tech company.
Foreseeing that the current immigration climate could work against my favor, I used my 12-month repayment-grace-period to pay off the loan in whole.
Last month, I was notified that my renewal application for my visa was not approved; so I am moving back home to India next week.
For clarity, my student-loan disbursement amount totals to $42,000, and repayment amount totals to $46,706.
