How do I math post 2L SA summer and 3L summer?

Postby PinkCow » Fri Aug 09, 2013 8:58 am

Just wondering what you guys do. I just finished up my 2L SA and, after my decreased financial aid is accounted for, I'll have about $8,000 left over for this year.

I am not going anywhere this summer, but would like to take some sweet, semi-expensive trips for a few weeks next summer. My question is twofold:


1) For the people who go on pre/post bar trips, do you just use your 2L SA money? Do you get some kind of advance from your firm for that summer? Or do you just max out 5 credit cards?


2) Also, do you pay off some loans? Is it worth it? Which loans?

Many firms give salary advances for the summer you take the bar/before you start work.
