$3,500 to 401(K) (This will get me the largest possible match from my employer, 3% on the first 6% contributed and i would contribute a little more)
$5,500 to Roth IRA

My general order of how to allocate extra cash beyond maxing out my Roth and getting the employer match on my 401(k) appears to be to toss half of the extra money at my student loan and then save the other half until my emergency fund reaches six month. Then get intense on my student loan until its gone for good. Thoughts?
