Yeah, just board. I like to look at it with some strategy in mind. If you really made a big law salary, you could destroy that student loan debt with about 10 years (if you were frugal), but even at harvard, you can still get laid off, or have other natural road blocks allowing a massive interest to accumulate, but if you were graduated from a tier 4 with no debt, and made smart investments you may be able to better position yourself.

I read about someone going close to 400K in Debt at one t14, I certainly don't know how but it is possible. There are people that go 6 years in undergrad for 150k now. I am sure not that many people do it, but it's probably been done, or at least something close to that.

Tier 4 with no debt. A man was recently denied admission to the bar because of excessive debt. What good is a Harvard JD if you can't practice?

I didn't realize this was from a game until the second time I saw it, and it was the three Bruins fans standing up clapping that caught my eye. Pretty sweet graphics; what game is that?

This is a weird hypo. If you can get into harvard, chances are you can get into a nice school ranked anywhere between 14-100 with $ or $$ and even $$$. So it's not one or the other. There are def choices in between, that would make more sense.
