That only 20k in debt doesn't add up unless he was working during UG.

Why would he have to work during ug when his tuition and living expenses were paid for. That 20k was nearly all from his last year.

So his tuition for one year and living expenses for two years were less than 20K?

At OU yes. He may have had some help via parents but not a substantial amount.

My total yearly tuition and fees in UG were about $7,500. That would be $30k for full 4-yr, but in my state if you start college at 16 the first two years are free. Thus, I only paid ~$15k in tuition and fees. (I didn't actually pay this thanks to FTA, but that's how much it would have been.)

I worked full-time to cover COL.

You could just use the backspace button instead of the strike through button

It's a pity public law schools are so outrageous. I don't understand how UVA, a school funded by tax dollars, can justify forcing instate students to pay over 66,000 for a year. It simply doesn't make sense to me.



because it isn't funded by tax dollars. it's essentially private, and public in name only by being associated with the university

If they loved you they wouldn't let you take out GRADPLUS loans.

14K in subsidized loans. Graduated with 44K in debt, paid off 30K of it in about 9 months. Now im just paying the minimum on the subsidized loan and banking the rest for law school in the fall.

I'm sure other states have similar programs


That's cool. I wish all states had that.

It's just to help build his credit and open them up to the benefits of PAYE/IBR if he doesn't make money. They'll probably make the payments for him when the time comes.
