Contrary to popular TLS opinion there are a lot of people in this boat--like myself for instance.


Yeah I don't see what's so funny about this. A lot of people don't get big law. LRAP or IBR should help.

So if you're in an area of the country where buying a home is equal to or cheaper than renting (which makes my NYC ass green with envy), then seems like you should be okay as long as you can get the down payment together, right?
