lest we forget this bee-yoo-tiful love story.
Are you really as dumb as your posts indicate?
and you really have male private part for nose?
Hmm, you suck at flaming, so why did you even make this profile? Most xoxo'ers who come over here do it to take a piss on someone, but you're just spamming threads with useless stuff. What gives?
Hey LSDers...this was posted on another board I frequent. I'm hoping if I post it here and get some good responses, I can point the OP over here. On the other board, a board full of newlyweds, they'll all telling her that 34 isn't the best age to be taking on student loans and at best are recommending she talk her husband into a PT program. IMO, a 177 is worth taking on the debt and almost certain scholarships at a T14.
I am new here but this seems like a good place to ask, since it seems there's alot of lawyers and people with student loans on here.
I graduated law school a year ago with $130k worth of debt. I don't make a ton of money, but I've been working and slowly making the debt go away.
My fiance has been unhappy with his job since we met over two years ago. He decided that he wants to go to law school too. I didn't really think much about it until he took the LSAT in Feb and scored a 177. Now he wants to go to NYU or Columbia and is hell bent on applying this fall to start next year. He wants to be a prosecutor (read: low pay).
I really want to move to NY, so that's not the problem. We've talked about it before. But, I am really concerned about the debt we'd be taking on. Best case scenario, I'd have $100k in debt and be supporting us, while he took on another $100k+ in debt.
I'm 30 and he's 34. We don't own a house and I want kids soon, before it's too late.
He is not that concerned about it because his very ill grandmother has written her will out to him and his sister, so he's set to inherit a couple hundred thousand in the short term.
I'm just confused. On the one hand, I don't think it's fair to deny him a fancy private school graduate degree when I have one. And the money he'd use to pay off would come from his family. But, I don't like the idea of counting on that money (I took Wills, I know the drama that arises), and it's just a ton of debt at a fairly late stage when I feel like we should be buying a house and having kids. I just picture us as stressed out, overworked, childless 40 year olds still renting a cramped apartment, waiting for grandma to die so we can start our lives.
We are going to see a marriage counselor a couple times before we get married in August. But I'd love some thoughts on this from outsiders to help me sort out my thoughts on this.
I was going to say, "Stop picking on the poor high school kid." but then I read this post:
hopefully he'll take a writing class or two.....
