Im expecting to have around 25k by the time I graduate. It may not seem like a lot but think about it, thats a car.

Better than a house. That's not how much I'll graduate with, but sadly many are. I'll be graduating with more like a house downpayment worth, maybe a bit more

My LRAP effectively pays off all my loans if I decide to go the PI route. So I'm currently planning to max out all my loans and turn them into savings (my wife's income actually covers all my cost of living). That being the case... 180k debt. If I decide to go the firm route, be stingy, and minimize total debt... and assuming a 30k SA 2L year... 80 - 90k debt.

Zero. On my current budget I will actually graduate with $50,000 in savings.

$0 (only three semesters worth of tuition to go!). PT @ T1. Scholarship + employer picking up about 30% of the tab, I've got the rest.

Things are actually trickier if I pick up a firm SA next summer (really good shot at it) because I'll have to quit my job.

Everyone posting $0 in here should be ashamed of themselves, and possibly shot.
