You may now be a doctor making a good income and if you’ve been paying your bills on time your scores may have improved 100 points or more, which would definitely qualify you for a better credit score and lower interest rate.
Check with your existing bank to see if your current loans can be consolidated into a lower interest rate loan before you take it to another bank.
