If I get no aid whatsoever from my current top choice and I take out a little more per year than what they have listed as COA, I get this from the finaid calculator:

"If you use 15% of your gross monthly income to repay the loan, you will need an annual salary of only $207,144.80, but you may experience some financial difficulty."

I think it will. This sums it up better than I could:


Anonymous Loser wrote:The IBR program was voted in under a Republican administration with broad bipartisan support. It's hard to imagine a situation where cutting the program--particularly as it relates to public interest positions--is going to be politically viable. Teachers, law enforcement officers, health-care professionals and many other similarly situated individuals benefit from the program, which represents only a minute fraction of the federal budget. Moreover, the IBR program was funded by eliminating subsidies to private lenders participating in the FFEL lending program. Overall, in light of the fact that there are so many more programs that could be cut while yielding greater savings with less political fallout, it seems unlikely that the IBR program will become a target.

Thankfully I only applied to schools that cost on average $25K OOS and significantly less for in state. So I'll only be looking at like $80K in debt. :P

I had a minor panic attack about paying full tuition last night. There are some schools that I could justify the cost to myself, but I've been waitlisted at all of them. Now my law school choice is basically based on whether I really want to pay full tuition at Georgetown. (Unless I miraculously get off of a waitlist...)

I'm weighing paying between 150-200 versus nothing. I sound like a crazy person but as all of y'all know it's a very personal decision. I still need to do some visiting and even more excel data crunching.

If I pay nothing, I get to be a sugar momma, and that's cool. I could even be a PI sugar momma kinda-sorta. If I go into 150k of debt I will be in debt until I literally am a momma.

Ugh, unfortunately so far every school I've applied to regardless of the ranking.

I applied super late after my LSAT score magically jumped up nine points the second time around. So I had to limit myself to schools that either a.) weren't that expensive for OOS or b.) let you become an instate resident after a year or, in some cases, a year and a half. I could wait another cycle and hope for scholarships but... I don't know. I just really don't want to wait another year. It would be practical moneywise but impractical when it came to my sanity or the sanity of my family. Besides, as I said, most of the schools I'm looking at wouldn't put me that much in debt anyway so I could probably cope.

Alabama is the one exception to that rule. I would pay out the ass to go there, I really would. I was raised in an Alabama house hold and have bled crimson since I was born.

This thread looks like home to. Probably gonna be at NYU at full tuition + that crazy COL. Can't get much more expensive than that. I've got some savings, but not enough to put much more than a drop in this giant bucket of debt.

Love it.

I think, for no real reason whatsoever, that I'd rather go to Georgetown than Cornell. (I'm actually going to do my research in the upcoming weeks). But UIllinois sure is looking good with their guaranteed scholarship and all...
