28,500 for me.

is that for the term, or yr?

That's for the year.  I can't imagine being able to borrow much less from my school (without having loads of cash of my own).  They gave me a hefty grant, and I borrow the rest up to the budget (roughly).

so is that just living, or living and tuition?

For everything and I'll borrow less in future semesters. I am not on a full scholarship. But between a natural tendency to pinch pennies and a tiny career in accounting, parting with money is like parting with organs for me

That's for everything.  The tuition is like 37k/yr, the student budget (including that) is like 56k/yr, I get like 26K in grants, and the rest is loans.

Some people are borrowing nearly that amount I imagine.  I will be lucky to get out with less than 90K in loans from ls alone.  Good thing ugrad was cheap.  Also, no repo-man for brains.
