A Curious Inquiry

Postby gustrock » Thu Sep 23, 2010 12:05 pm

Would you rather graduate with 140K in Debt with a 120K Job Lined up, or graduate with 60K in Debt and have an 80K job lined up?

Just say "Former" or "Latter." No smart ass remarks necessary.

4,918 Posts X 2 (Appx.) Minutes per post = 9,836 Minutes.

9,836 Min. = 164 Hours.

If you would have put that 164 hours into LSAT Study time, I GUARANTEE you would have gotten into all those schools you got rejected at.

Oooh, an LSAT insult!

Even if I had gotten in, it wouldn't have mattered. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

And when you start threads that give people instructions on how you want them to respond, don't be colossal fucking assclown douchebag about it.

A Curious Inquiry? Why, however did you imagine such a thing as an inquiry born out of curiousity? You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar of the finest order!

What about me. I have 18000 posts before BP was deleted. Would I have gotten a 185 and gotten into UChi?

Latter.

1. I've had enough debt in life to know that it matters greatly.

2. 80k job is no small potatoes right now (or at any time really), and is likely to be slightly less stressful and miserable than the 120k job.

3. 80k becomes 120k one day.

1. 140 is the median home price or there about in not so great areas, so it is debt that everyone making much less can take on

2. In my experience, in the same capacity, the more you get paid, the less crap you have to take. Maybe it is just me and how I deal with work though.

3. 120k becomes 160k one day, after your loan is paid off.

There is no circumstance that should cause someone to choose the second one unless it was in a city that they wanted to live in and the former was not, but you didn't specify.

Under the former your loan payments will be more but you will have more disposable income to cover that increase. The latter has smaller payments and less income. For the sake of simplicity say that leaves you with the exact same takeaway every month, except under the former you come out of debt at the same time making much more.

I guess if you are particularly stress averse you could choose the second, but all things equal, the first option wins every time.

This deteriorated quickly.

Also, option 1 ceteris paribus (doing this just to spite romo).
