I'm saying $50-$100K (closer to about $60K), but that's really worse case scenario and sadly, just for living expenses  >:(

Worst-case, about $100k. I'm crossing my fingers that the market will be kind to me and give me juicy 2L SA position (we can all dream, right?), though, which would lower my debt slightly.

$60K

Tuition at UB is $15,700/year. I'm taking the max Stanford loans ($20,500/year) out to pay for book and daycare.

Oh, it won't be a problem just as soon as a couple of aged family members kick the bucket  8)
