Well, I got into my number one choice (Tulane) and the deposit (at least the first part of it) is in, but now I am having second thoughts about the prospects of taking out over $100,000 in student loans....especially when I could go to a state school and end up less than $40,000 in debt when I graduate....Add a new offer of instate tuition at FSU into the mix, and the fact that I am still waiting on Bama and Houston (umm, wtf Houston, my file has been in review for 2 months now!) and I have no idea what to do.Anyone having second thoughts about their dream school with killer debts and the possibility of having to take a horrible job upon graduation just to pay it off, verses cheap state schools with decent job prospects?Eh, this process stresses me out more and more each day....
If I have a worst-case scenario and have to pay $2K a month back in loans, it's not going to be hard for me to be making $3K more a month to put me at a standard of living that I had before.

This is what I'm counting on too. I think as long as you have this perspective that you're going to be an attorney because thats what you want to do and you don't mind living reasonably, then everything will be fine. If you want to be an attorney to be rich, or if you'll need a new BMW upon passing the bar, well, then you should probably stress about the debt.
