    What is the estimated average debt for private schools if I were to apply next year?

    Im in-state california. I'm hoping to apply to UCLA/UCSF next year because it's cheaper but they're also very competitive, so I was wondering, assuming I have to head towards privates, what would be the average debt since tuitions increase every year?
