What is your dental school debt load? You don't have to post the info in great detail since it might be very personal to some. Just a rough estimate may do.

I recently heard from some Dean or other that for graduates of the Texas dental schools, the average debt is $92,500 at graduation, and the tuition at TX schools is incredibly low, so I'd think that would be the lowest possible reasonable estimate. That's all the info I have, though. :)

I thought UT San Antonio was MUCH lower than this.

My buddy turned down a slew of schools to go to UT because he got a$ 4,000 scholarship and tuition was only $3,400.

Truth?

Depends on whether you're in-state or out-of-state. In-staters pay around $5k tuition, with $10k fees to make $15k for 1st year approximately, and out-of-staters pay 3 times as much tuition and the same amount for fees for a total of about $25k. As you can see, the fees are a huge part, esp. 1st and 2nd years. I think it might get less bad 3rd & 4th years.

I'll get my ADEA book out tonight & see if I can provide some more concrete details; this is just what I'm remembering & may not be 100% accurate.
