I am about two years away from attending a medical school. I am married and have a one year old child. Currently, I am the only financial support of the family. After doing some calculations I found that by the time I graduate from medical school I will owe $260K-$270K. Using the online loan payment calculator, I figured that my monthly payments will be $1860. Also, from what I hear and read, residents make somewhere between $2700-$3300/month after taxes. The question is: Assuming my wife doesn't work, how am I going to be able to make those payments and support my family at the same time?
