I'm impressed that you guys have saved so much. I had nothing, but I had no debt either.

Realistically I'll have around $5,000 saved up + no debt.

I did buy a powerball ticket this weekend though. I'll let you guys know how it goes!

I'll have $60k legit savings in my account plus I have $50k from the house I sold when I left college. Ive been keeping the house $ to use for down payment on my next house purchase that I've been dragging my feet on.

But I've been working for past 5 years plus throughout college. Its amazing how much you start saving if you just give up drinking =)

Good luck to everyone

60k holy f^&*. But giving up drinking... Anyway, I paid down all my consumer debt and hope to have about $2000 saved after moving back to the US and furnishing an apartment etc. But Realistically the move will take up all my savings, but I should have furniture and enough to start my life so I guess I can't complain too much.

Hopefully by the time I enroll, I will have paid off my car loan and saved close to $30k.
