It depends. If you have high balance on student loans, then conventional loans would be better because conventional allows Income Based Repayment (IBR) where FHA takes 1% of the outstanding loan balance and uses that as hypothetical debt. If you have higher debt to income ratios, FHA would be better because FHA allows up to 56.9% debt to income ratio where conventional only allows max 50% DTI.
