When to start paying off student loans?

I have over $200k in student loan debt and earn about $64k a year before taxes. In a few years my income should be about $200k a year.

Should I be trying to make more than minimum payments now? I can be more aggressive but it feels like I will hardly make a dent anyway. What do you think about waiting a few years before starting to aggressively attack it once my income is higher?

Instead of paying off loans (5.8% interest) I’ve been putting money into my 401k which should be earning about 7% and been trying to build an emergency fund
