it all comes entirely down to where you go. some schools in-state are 7k, and some privates are 30k in expensive cities. law school is actually going to cost me less than my undgrad did....and offers better earning potential upon completion than my ba in history did. as for yearly cash flow. from what i'm finding out, it's pretty much endless if you have good credit. my tuition is only 12k/year, and i was offered 32k in loans, which is obviously overkill. you're guaranteed at least 18.5k in staffords alone.
