A good one.

Way too vague to come up with a meaningful answer. It depends on a lot: your monthly expenses? do you have to support anyone else? Is anyone else supporting you? How many hours/week are you going to work? Blah blah blah...

Also how long? You can pay your debt of in 25 years no matter what job you get. GO IBR! If you want to pay it off quicker than that it will take more money.

We're law students, not calculators. For fuck's sake, this shit is easy to figure out and the data is available all over the net. Look up cost of living in cities, look up info on loan repayment, etc.

Correct. There are debt calculators EVERYWHERE. I'm not even going to bother typing "debt calculator" into google to find you the link.
