additional fees, insurance, parking, etc.
so we're looking at around 42K for Tulane. I'll throw in a grand for a new computer, fifty bucks for a 'tulane law' sweatshirt, and another two for my 'tulane law' sticker for the back of my whip. add in a few more things, and i'm quickly thinking 45K is a reasonable estimation..now what other things? 700-800 for rent. a'ight. how about utilities down there? 200 a month? food -- 400 a month? recreation? another 15K? i guess i should just plan on bringing 60 large? law school really is going to cost mad duckets. yo.
i haven't even heard back from UGA...apparently i'm still being reviewed...maybe it's taking so long because i'm no longer a resident (originally from the 'A' - but went to school/live in Boston). oh well.i'm really looking forward to NOLA...new culture, new laws (anyone know the specifics on what constitutes an open-container and what you can and cannot do?), food...etc, etc, etc. plus, i think it'll give me the most options when i graduate.but UGA in-state, if you know you want to practice in Georgia, certainly is appealing.
Every person at Tulane next year, it seems to me, will be someone who is not just floating through life.
But I think I can find ways to indulge my imagination in other ways with the 80 grand I'll save. It'll break my heart to tell Tulane 'no thanks.' Guess I'll decide soon.
