say school is 30,000 a year x 8 is 240,000. and say u can maybe pay 40,000 of it working in school. thats 200,000 debt. (pretty much, worst case scenario)
when u owe that, just set up a 10-year mortgage, thats 20,000 a year out of a 120,000 salary. it'd only be $1,667 a month, which seems like a lot, but it'd be a drop in the bucket for a dentist.
(but keep in mind, it'll all be hell if u don't really want to be a dentist)
