However, I said that it would be much harder to live as a military dentist with 90K of debt, plus interest, plus 25K of undergrad debt than a military dentist with just 25K of undergrad debt. After loan payments and taxes I'll be living on maybe 30K a year. I said that this might be forced to get out after 3 years just to take care of myself, especailly if I have a family. I don't need to be rich, but I don't want to live paycheck to paycheck just because of such ridiculous circumstances (missing out on a scholarship by a few days).
I'd really like to hear your math behind these calculations...
