Roughly $90,000 @ UVa.

After adding in UG loans, just a hair under $100,000 total.

Yeah. Going by the UVa budget, with estimated increases during 2nd and 3rd years.

Yeah - living expenses included in mine.  Those were the deciding dollars for me.  I got money elsewhere, but the cost of living priced even some of them out of my equation.  Having a baby and a non-working wife sure does change things.

About 120k, but I also have 15k from undergrad, so that's 135k, and my husband is going to have about 40k, so I'm looking at swinging payments for 175k right out the starting gates...

(And that assumes my husband doesn't go for a masters or anything... I think he's up to working for 2-3 years to reduce the burden at first, and then go back to school while playing house hubby to our future kids... I love my husband!)

And once again being in Canada rocks. Then again it's not like 50k Canadian is anything to sneeze at. Perhaps my score will suck and I'll get into a worse school. That will cut my debt load a lot. I wonder why U of T has to cost nearly double every other school in the province.
