Fine. If no one else will Google it for me, I will just Google it myself.
Seriously though, is that for the calendar year? I'm gonna need a roommate or three.
I'm a 0L, but Jeffersonian at 750/mo will come out to 9000, plus a food budget of 100 or so puts you at 10,200 for the year. If you did 9 months, that'd come out to 7650 (way below 16000). I'm assuming you can use the extra COL loan money for car payments/insurance if you wanted (or maybe a nice suit?)5ky wrote:I can't say I've ever heard of a person who maxed out on loans and was desperately searching around for money. Charlottesville is mad cheap. I come in way under the projected COL every year.
For my first year, I took out maybe 10k total for living expenses and was fine. I didn't have car payments or anything, though.
(Note: doesn't include utilities or cable/internet...Ivy Gardens would be about 100 more a month for rent)
