and to those of us who are making the in the very low five figures, $4k is a lot of money... :)

(salary isn't really indicative of success/reputation in lots of fields...)

If you're making in the low five figures, taking up $100k in credit card debt might not be the best gamble to make, I'd say.

Just don't mess it up. To be fair, unless you are living with your parents and use them as your household income, you're not going to be getting 100K in credit card debt to mess around with.

I would hope not, but it seems credit card companies likes giving away money hoping people will @#!* up.

To the OP:
 I think most people have given you solid advice. Sell your car, your house, and all the crap you bought. If you really want to go to law school, you're going to have to start all over.

it's not a gamble, it's a 4hr/wk part-time job.

Once it's setup, it's like 15 minutes/wk for me.

yanni, you need to get used to living a more humble lifestyle.

you are doomed in the fated sense, but that's completely irrelevant because that's only from the viewpoint of someone who is not constrained by time. since you are temporal, for all intents and purposes you have the power to change your future

It's a gamble in terms of being way over your head in debt, and you never know if *&^%'s going to hit the fan. That being said, I do not care how many people get screwed over by credit card debt, that's entirely your own decision to make. I suppose that just makes my credit rating look better ;)

How could you not know when *&^% is about to hit the fan?

its a little more complicated than me just going out and buying *&^% i cant afford- i could afford it, i just charged it

which makes me a bigger moron.

anyways, cash and carry!!  and my credit rating isnt bad- i have 2 cards that aren't even charged at all, its just that i have a lot of credit.
