What is everyone spending?
« on: August 04, 2004, 10:57:27 AM »
I am a pre-law hopeful and I am wondering what everyone is spending on their legal education?  Maybe give school, out of state status, projected yearly cash flow, and whether you think it is worth it.  I post here because you people obviously know more about this than the other pre-law students. Thanks! ::)

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.

 :-\ I am paying 20K for school taking out loans for living expenses, since I quit my job and live in an expensive city (DC). So, this year will cost me about 40K.

Let's see.  $2,250 per term in tuition.
Maybe $500 per term in books
$160 per week airfare X 15 weeks per term
$100 per week hotel X 15 weeks per term
 That's 6650 per term.  Three terms per year puts me at $19950. Multiplied by three years 59850.
