Just curious, which part of the budget is so over-estimated?
If we consider for 12 months from here https://www.law.upenn.edu/admissions/fi ... pplicants/
If I look their rest estimate, $746 doesn't really seem extravagant from the listings I've seen
$13 a day for food doesn't seem very outlandish to me either...
The rest of the budget seems pretty small and easily filled up with stuff like gas, household supplies, other random shit...

I'm not trying to say I can't live decently on a 16k take home salary, but I'm not quite seeing how it is WAY too high.
Maybe I'm just missing something, but I've been working on my budget so
