This bit amused particularly amused me:

"Assumption: $180,000 in accumulated debt, 8% interest rate (since some will be lower rate stafford loans)

Let's assume throw CoL to the wind and live in New York City, shall we?

Salary Paycheck Calculator (http://www.paycheckcity.com/NetPayCalc/ ... Result.asp )

Weekly Gross Pay $1,153.85 = 60K/year
Net Pay after all federal, NYS, and NYC taxes: $771.07 = $40K/year, 3,341/month.

Now let's toss 180K at 8% into a loan calculator and try to pay this bad boy down in 30 years. Monthly payment? 1320.78

Subtract it from our net pay above and we get after taxes and loans actual, spendable income of *drum roll* 2020.22 per month for living, eating, and shopping

ZOMG YOU'RE LOANZ WILL NEVAR BE PAID OFF AND U WILL STARTVE

NOBODY IN AMERICA NOW OR EVER HAS EVER SURVIVED ON SUCH A PALTRY SUM!11!11!! LOANZ WILL NEVER EVER BE PAID OFF.

Look, I understand you might not like math... but try it sometimes before you make yourself look /too/ stupid on the internet."


anyone else think this isn't a lot of money to live on for the next 30 years?  i mean for a few years maybe, but 30?

LOl, I would assume, or hope one would get at least one pay raise in 30 years. besides isn't there a thing now where after you pay for 25 years the fed drops the rest you owe?
*In clinical studies, Matthies was well tolerated, but women who are pregnant, nursing or might become pregnant should not take or handle Matthies due to a rare, but serious side effect called him having to make child support payments.

you might get raises.

you might also get laid off.

no room for hedging, apparently.

i don't know anything about repaying loans.

Just an anecdote signally an LSD posting decline.  You know when you post but someone had just posted in the same subject while you're writing your post and a message appears asking whether you'd like to review what you have written.  A common phenomenon formally.  That actually hasn't happened to me in probably at least 6 months.

I didn't want to turn it off, it served a very relevant purpose :)

I wonder if all the moderators, as well as the owner of the site, have as strong of an interest in this as PJC (the general decline of activity on LSD, not the warning that a post has been made while you were typing).
Birds of a feather flock together.

I wonder.  I think most people involved would *like* to see this place become a significant and contemporary source of law school advice.  But I don't think that many people care enough to brainstorm and then do something.  As a mod, I have no control over anything this so I guess my brainstorming is futile.
