How much do $$do you need beyond loans?

[#permalink] 31 May 2011, 18:00 Hey Guys, I'm looking for a serious evaluation from people who have gone through or are currently enrolled in a full time MBA program. How much money, above and beyond the schools estimated budget, should an incoming student expect to have in the bank before enrolling? From everything I've gathered, you can get student loans up to the amount published by the school, however, in most cases this doesn't seem like enough to live on. I realize this may depend on your lifestyle choices while in school, so recommendations from either end of the spectrum would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

[#permalink] 01 Jun 2011, 01:48 I'm not qualified to give an opinion (I'm starting Fall 2011 myself) but I'm budgeting around 10k per year over and above the school recommended numbers. That better be enough - I don't have more! _________________ Re: How much do$$$ do you need beyond loans?   [#permalink] 01 Jun 2011, 01:48
