I had a freak out about loans the other day when this calculator thing told me I had to make 6 figures to pay off my loans. 6 figures to pay $700 in loans a month ???

That's not true.  You definitely don't need to make 6 figs to pay off $700/mo.  You could make $50-60K in the right city and live comfortably paying $700/mo. in loans.
If looks could kill, you would be an uzi.

Good morning Exile!

It's okay, I'm still high off the glow of the Red Sox's sparking 8-0 record against the Yankees this season, capped by yesterday's superfun game. If anyone is self-loathing, it's those Yankees fans who think their shiny new pitchers are actually capable/worthy of how much money they're making. js.

Plus, Theo Epstein, in addition to being super rich and super smart, is also SUPER hot. And Jewish. ACK. Perfect husband material!

This may be enough to turn me into a Red Sox fan!

That's true. But still, OCI for class of 2011 is going to suuuuck. And for 2012 too, I'm assuming, considering how large the backlog will be.

This is #1 in "Things I Don't Want to Read in the Morning"  >:(  Deeeeeeeeeepressing.  But really, this extra layer of competition freaks me out all the time.  I try to keep some optimism by hoping perhaps that firms will be back to hiring robustly in our 3L fall, but who knows?

This sucks so much - another reason why the smartest move in this market is to go to the best school you can that offers you the most moolah.  Lord knows that paying sticker is an epic fail.

Agreed.  It's a business decision at this point.

That's exactly what I thought. I don't know where they got that from

I mean, it depends entirely on the COL.  

If you spend:

rent - $1000
food - $500
transportation - $400
utilities/other expenses - $600
loans - $700
saving - $500
misc. - $300
total - $4000

That works out to $48,000 a year, divided by (1 - tax rate [probably ~.72]) gives you a gross income of ~66/67K.

::shrugs::

I did a bit of my own calculations after that and realized I would be ok so I stopped freaking out. But still, it was strange.

Did your schools make you take a stafford entrance councling thing for loans? That's where it was from

Yo, CTL, what do you figure your COL to be?  I'm trying to figure out how much I wanna borrow.

I went to high school with one of those pitchers. Don't tell MA.
