$125,000 in debt?

$125,000 in debt?
« on: September 18, 2005, 08:12:58 PM »
Hi everyone, I am applying in October and was just wondering how easy it is to pay off the debt once one graduates from law school?  If I get accepted to the schools I would really like, I will probably get no finacial help.  Just wondering if going to a good school i.e. top 20-30 is worth the tremendous debt.  Any input would be great!

No matter how you slice it, $125K in student loans is a lot of money. 

However, there are a ton of variables to consider.  What kind of life-style are you going to live after graduation?  Are you interested in PI law?  Are you gunning for "Big Law"?  Do you have a lot of existing student loan debt?  Are you financially disciplined? 

There is no one size fits all answer here.
